single compartment 'a' is used throughout. For exceptions see versions 3 and 4.
for all names such as 'Alisandre' and 'Aristotle', this double compartment upper case 'A' is used.
for all 'A's at the beginning of lines, this version of upper case 'A' is used. There are no exceptions.
'd's are all looped with angular lobe.
this 'D' appears at the beginning of a line where every other first letter is upper case. It would appear that the scribe does not have a different graph for the upper case letter.
double compartment 'g' is used throughout. The upper compartment is slightly bigger than the lower one.
the upper compartment has a more vertical aspect and the lower is more horizontal.
upper case 'G' at the top of the folio.
'h' is neatly and consistently formed.
the head-stroke is often a separate thick stroke with hair-line to link back to the top of the shoulder.
the tail of 'h' is fine and curves gently clockwise.
'H' in upper case position at the beginning of a line. It is the same as the lower case graph.
modern 'r' is used throughout in all positions except after 'o', although on occasions it is also used after 'o' instead of the 'z'-shaped 'r'.
modern 'r' used in final position.
'z'-shaped 'r' used afterb 'o'.
upper case 'R' as the second letter following a pen-flourished initial.
long 's' used in initial and medial positions
'8'-shaped 's' is used in final position. But see version 3.
kidney-shaped 's' is also used in final position.
both head-loops are usually closed and there is a 'B'-shaped element to the right.
'w' within a word with open head-stroke at the top of the right limb.
although 'w' often has an angular foot to the left limb, this version is sharper than usual.
upper case 'W' at the beginning of a line.
there are very few 'y's on this folio. The scribe tends to use 'ie' at the ends of words instead of 'y'.
most 'y's tend to be dotted.
although mostly the tail turns counter-clockwise to finish, on a few occasions, the tail is a straight line.
|Thorn and Yogh|
thorn is used frequently not only for the definite article and pronouns, but also as a replacement 'th' at times.
yogh is used a couple of times on the folio. It is used as equivalent of 'y' and also as representative of the 'z' sound of the plural.
