single compartment 'a' used as the lower case graph.
the scribe has several versions of upper case 'A'.
a more upright version of 2.
the scribe uses unlooped 'd' almost all the time. However, there is a looped 'd' as will be seen in versions 2 and 4.
looped 'd' ligatured with 'e' as a continuous stroke.
probably the shape of the scribe's upper case 'D' although he uses it on a number of occasions where the lower case letter would seem more appropriate.
the word occurs at the end of a line and 'd' is tagged.
tailed 'g' shaped like a number 9 with descender tapering clockwise.
'g' as final letter with extended cross-stroke.
upper case letter tipped with red ink.
the scribe allows himself licence with the waving tail of 'g' on the bottom line.
'h' set at a slight angle. The limb is short and barely descends below the level of the stem.
in the combinations 'th', 'ch', 'sh', the scribe frequently crosses the 'h' in desultory fashion whereas in the 'ght' combination, the 'h' is rarely crossed.
'h' from the rubric in the scribe's hand.

this squat 'v'-shaped 'r' used most of the time in every position.
occasionally the scribe will use long 'r' over several lines. Here it is in final position with a flourish probably for a missing final 'e'.
'z'-shaped 'r' used after 'o' and after some consonants.
in final position, modern 'r' often has a flourish attached. Again, it may signal a missing 'e'.
sigma 's' is usually reserved for initial position. However, occasionally the scribe uses it in final position.
kidney-shaped 's' is the preferred 's' in final position.
upper case 'So'.
long 's' is used both initially and medially. It is a slanting stroke tapered at both ends.
secretary 'w' alternates with the looped anglicana form.
although here 'w' is the initial letter, this form of 'w' is usually used within a word with version 1 most in evidence as the initial letter.
at the beginning of a line.
the tail of 'y' is a graceful arc.
this word is on the bottom line of text where most letters have descenders of an exaggerated length.

|Thorn and Yogh|
thorn not only used for pronouns and demonstratives but for general replacement of 'th'.
the stem of thorn tapers. The lobe is set high on the stem.
yogh is rarely used.
