Another claim of decipherment comes from Canadian researchers, who used artificial intelligence to identify the language of the manuscript.
Once one has lit upon a correspondence or a connection, the urge is to take it further, to identify all possible significances in a series of thoughts along the following lines: "if we interpret this thus, then it supports that and implies the other." The temptation is to find the perfect fit, the exact correspondence, regardless of the twists and turns one has to take along the way, and midway through his argument Murphy begins to deploy the exact qualifiers--"if this decipherment is accurate" (164)--which signify that one has given into that temptation.

Another work, Ken Gelder's Reading the Vampire (1994), is seminal in its decipherment of the vampire in its cultural context from a range of theoretical perspectives (appropriately open-minded for such an elusive creature), but it appeared in 1994, necessarily excluding recent avatars of the humanised vampire in paranormal romance and Young Adult fiction.
First, I place its scenes and words within the larger, culturally determined systems of meaning surrounding them; both the gestures that these painted figures perform and the messages on the vase act much like formulae in epic song, as repositories of a significance that goes beyond their denotative meaning on this particular occasion and that encompasses both existing traditions informing acts of bird (and specifically swallow) identification and decipherment and the social practices typically associated with the individuals included in the scene.
