I'm not sure if there's enough information to make this something that people will want to hack at for very long. It's probably not a standard substitution, as three of your words start with "ff", and it's uncommon in English to have a duplicated 1st letter for a word. It's also probably not a reordering, since uncommon letters like 'z' keep showing up, and common letters like r, s, and t aren't used once.

However, the word length looks quite plausible-- no plethoras of long words or really short ones. So my guess is it's a non-standard substitution.

Might help if there was more to go on, but maybe not. Depends, I suppose. Tell you what-- you solve mine and I'll work some more on yours:

Plethora is already plural. One plethorum, a plethora of plethora.
No wait, that means plethora is singlular. Maybe the plural is plethorae.

Fair enough DaveE. I am really impressed with your analysis. Yes, the message is actually from a non English source.

Have A Great Day!
