a straight-sided 'a' is used throughout with horizontal dividing stroke and diagonal hairline cross at the head.
the lower lobe of upper ase 'A' may be rounded or more angular as in this example.
unlooped 'd' is used throughout in all positions.
the first 'd' is independently formed, the second is ligatured with 'e'.
where 'd' is in ligature with 'e' the thick down-stroke is extended to form the lower portion of 'e'.
a neat, angular double compartment 'g' very consistently formed.
'g' in final position with a short tag at the end of the horizontal connecting stroke.
the individual strokes of the graph are thickly scribed with hairline closure at an oblique angle across the head.
a rounded feel to lower case 'h'. The stem has no foot and the head-stroke is smoothly rounded and just connects with the top of the shoulder.
'h' in final position.
in contrast, an 'h' in the rubric at the head of the folio. The head-stroke is an angled stroke rather than rounded.
an elaborate upper case graph with angled foot and semi-circular addition to the left of the stem.
modern 'r' is used in all positions.
'r' in final position with upturned flick to finish.
modern 'r' is used even after 'o'.
where 'e' follows 'r' as the final letter in a word, the 'e' drops below the lower level of the foot of 'r'.
both sigma and long 's' are used in initial position.
kidney-shaped 's' is always used in final position.
long 's' is used in initial and medial positions.
upper case 'S'.
the scribe has two versions of 'w', one rounded and the other with angled feet at the base of the limbs.
all 'w's have a single lobe at the right.
the more angular 'w' is used on each occasion for the upper case graph.
the left limb of 'y' descends vertically.
the fork of 'y' occurs at the lower level of surrounding graphs.
the tail of 'y' is usually quite short. It may be straight, as here or end with slight turn counter-clockwise.
|Thorn and Yogh|
thorn is hardly used for the usual articles and adjectives. It is used alot in the first few lines of the folio, then hardly at all in the remainder of the text.
yogh is used as representative of both 'y' and 'gh' elements.
