anglicana double compartment 'a' used throughout.
an image to show the size of the 'a' graph which almost always stands above other letters.
in the middle of a line and an upper case 'A' is used for this word although it is not the beginning of another sentence.
the word occurs at the beginning of a line and is in line with the scribe's other upper case graphs of 'A'.
the scribe uses both looped and unlooped 'd' with a preference for the looped version. In medial position both graphs are used but again with a preference for the looped version.
unlooped 'd' is used sparingly on this folio in all positions.
looped 'd' with tag in final position.
'g' in final position with tag.
crossed 'h' is almost always used after 't', 'c' and 'g'.
crossed 'h' after 'g'.
long 'r' is used throughout in all positions except after 'o'.
the stem of 'r' is thick. It occasionally appears as a single descending stroke. The return stroke is usually very fine and the fork occurs at the base of the stem.
'z'-shaped 'r' is used after 'o'.
the long 'r' of 'desire' seems to be a continuous stroke with the 'r' of neuere' on the line below.
long 's' is used as well as sigma 's' in initial position. Long 's' is always used medially.
sigma 's' is always used in final position and also frequently in initial position.
sigma 's' in initial position.
upper case 'S' as the first letter of a line.
the scribe has two forms of 'w' on the folio examined. This version with 'B'-shaped element to the right is also used for the upper case graph seen in version 4.
a more current form of 'w' with single loop as the right element.
basically the upper case graph is exactly the same in formation as the lower case one in version 1.
'y' is evenly formed with a straightish left arm and a wide, fairly thick tail turning counter-clockwise in a wide arc.
'y' in final position.
'y' is frequently used where 'i' would be expected.
although this word appears as the first word in the line, there is nothing in the size orshape of 'y' to suggest that it is an upper case graph. All other graphs at the beinnings of lines are clearly upper case so one must assume that lower and upper case 'y' are the same.
