double compartment 'a' is used throughout.
occasionally 'a' has a horned head-stroke. The horn to the left is actually the shoulder of the previous 'r' graph.
a very unusual triple-lobed upper case 'A' but nevertheless used on several occasions on both folios examined.
the more usual upper case graph.
unlooped 'd' with a 'u'-shaped lobe which appears open but which usually has a fine hairline to close.
upper case 'D' with serrated left side.
the scribe uses both anglicana double compartment 'g' and also tailed 'g'. There seems to be no system about the choice of graph.
Usage: a grese
horned single compartment tailed 'g'.
'h' is mainly of this type with open head-stroke.
'h' in final position following 't' is frequently, though not always, crossed.
Usage: He hathe his
a more elaborate upper case 'H' with curved foot at the base of the ascender, separate head-stroke and dot within the graph.
modern 'r' is used in every position except after 'o'.
almost all 'r's in final position attract this vertical tag. 't's and 's's are similarly tagged.
'z'-shaped 'r' follows 'o'.
both 'r's used here in accordance with the style.
long 's' is in fact not usually very long at all, extending just below the level of surrounding graphs.
8-shaped 's' is used in final position. It is usually tagged as here.
serpentine upper case 'S'.
most 'w's follow this pattern though on some folios, the 'w' in version 3 is more in evidence.
the head of the central limb is open at the top, curving over to the right.
an alternative 'w' used frequently by the scribe.
Usage: With outen
where 'W' begins a line, the left limb frequently extends to a point into the left margin.
the tail of 'y' is usually short and straight.
very occasionally there is a slight turn on the tail of 'y'.
'Y' at the beginning of a line with extended tail into the left margin.
|Thorn and Yogh|
thorn is a short stumpy graph with little or no descender below the lobe.
thorn is not ubiquitous for 'th'. Both exist throughout the text.
the only example of yogh which I could find on the folios examined. The scribe may be muddled as to when to use it as the spelling here is repetitive.
|Upper Case Letters|
and unusual semi-circular head-stroke for 'T'.
