the majority of the scribe's lower case 'a's are single compartment and formed as here with hairline connector at the head.
a single example on the sampled folios of straight-sided lower case 'a' with horizontal bar to divide into two compartments.
the scribe's favoured upper case version of 'A'.
occasionally the scribe uses this upper case 'A'.
the initial 'd' in this word.
whenever 'd' is in final position, it always has a tag attached as here.
the majority of the scribe's 'g's are formed as in versions 1 and 2. The length of tail varies according to space available and position in word.
The extra curved extension above the body of the letter on the right is frequently present.
however, there are a few occasions on the sampled folios where anglicana double compartment 'g' is also used.
'h' is usually formed with open head-stroke and foot at the lower end of the stem.
in 'gh' and'ght' combinations, 'h' is usually crossed.
occasionally the tail-stroke turns in reverse.
upper case 'H' at the beginning of a line.
'z'-shaped 'r' used in all positions almost all the time.
very occasionally the scribe uses long 'r'.
modern 'r' used occasionally, but see Wild Letter 2 for a further examination of the 'r' graph.
the 'z'-shaped 'r' sometimes has otiose strokes which descend vertically from the graph.
with one exception on the two sampled folios, sigma 's' is always used both initially and also in final position.
the first 's' in this word. Long 's' is used in medial positions. On one occasion it is used as the initial letter.
the formation of 'w' is fairly consistent. It usually has a spikey appearance.
sometimes the graph has a more rounded aspect with the middle arm forming a closed lobe at the top of the graph.
upper case graph at the beginning of the first line of the folio.
'y' used as first person singular pronoun.
'y' used instead of 'i'.
graph at the beginning of a line with license to extend into the side margin.
|Upper Case Letters|
an unusual 'B' graph with no top lobe, just a horned head-stroke with faint hairline connection back to the body of the graph.
|More of lower case r|
I take this to be the scribe's version of the modern 'r' graph. The formation is exactly the same as for the 'z'-shaped 'r' and one could assume that the flourished addition represents a missing 'e'. However, there are a few other occasions where a similar graph appears in the middle of a word without such an exaggerated flourish but with an added curved stroke after the 'z' and this appears to be the scribe's version of 'r'.
final letter in this word.
the penultimate letter of the word.
