single compartment 'a' is used most of the time.
the occasional use of anglicana 'a' either as a separate indefinite article or within a word, as here.
a very pointed lower lobe on this looped 'd'.
in final position 'd' frequently has a long trailing tag.
the first word of a line so probably the scribe's upper case graph.
squarish upper compartment for double compartment 'g'.
long oval lower compartment.
a curl on final 'g' which could be representative of a missing 'e'.
'h' is short and squat.
the limb is extremely thick.
the cross of 't' turns backwards to provide what might be taken as a crossed 'h'. This is a common practice of the scribe and not an isolated example.
a rather grotesque limb-stroke for 'h'.
both long 'r' and 'z'-shaped 'r' are used in initial position.
long 'r' in final position with flourish for missing 'e'.
'z'-shaped 'r' is used in all positions.

the scribe uses both anglicana looped 'w' as well as this cursive version.
at the beginning of a line so probably the upper case version which differs from the lower case in having no approach stroke.
'y' and thorn are exactly the same graph. Here there is a slight bend on the tail of 'y'.
the majority of the scribe's 'y's look like this example.
an example of 'y' with tail turning counter-clockwise perhaps to distinguish it from the initial thorn.
Usage: to gedyr
as said above, it would be difficult to find any difference between 'y' and thorn.
in this example, it is the thorn which has a slight turn on the tail whereas the 'y' has a straight tail-stroke.
