double compartment 'a' used throughout.
the scribe's formation of graphs is very haphazard. Not an even hand by any means.
upper case 'A' with closed upper compartment.
sometimes the top compartment of upper case 'A' is left open. '
looped 'd' in initial position.
'd' in final position and the word is the final word in the line. This may be the reason for the extended tag.
hardly decipherable but the 'D' is at the beginning of a line.
a neat version of the scribe's lower case 'g' which is always double compartment but which varies according to the amount of care the scribe exercises when copying.
'g' in final position with extended horizontal stroke extending from the centre of the upper lobe.
double 'g' with two reasonably similar graphs.
a controlled version of the initial 'g' graph.
inital 'h' graph. 'h' is most frequently represented by an 'h' graph with horizontal head-stroke.
the scribe constantly uses contractions, some of which are unusual. There is no 'h' in final position on this folio.
'h' on the top line with exaggerated ascender.
presumably this is 'His'. The word occurs at the beginning of a line. The scribe uses this abbreviation elsewhere on this folio.
long 'r' at the beginning of a word. Long 'r' is used throughout except after 'o'.
long 'r' in final position.
'z'-shaped 'r' after 'o'.
example of long 'r' and 'z'-shaped 'r' in the same word.
long 's' in initial position. Long 's' is used throughout in medial positions.
sigma 's' is also used in initial position.
sigma 's' used throughout in final position.
upper case 'S' at the beginning of a line.
variations of this 'w' abound. The formation of the graph is not consistent, a feature which applies to many of the scribe's graphs.
'w' in final position. The formation is the same. It is the scribe's erratic presentation of graphs which makes the aspect of his copying that gives the impression of variance in the graph formation.
another unsystematic variation of 'w'.
'W' in initial position in the line.
the scribe has a variety of abbreviations which are unusual. This version is a conventional abbreviation with the tail of 'y' arching up to join with the macron. The next word is 'hu' which presumably is an abbreviation for 'how'.
'y' in final position. The thickness of stroke of the tail of 'y' varies but is generally the same shape.
'y' in final position at the end of a line.
another example of the scribe's abbreviation fixation.
|Thorn and Yogh|
thorn is used on every occasion where 'th' is required.
yogh is used consistently for a variety of reasons here for the 'y' sound.
ȝ used for 'ght' replacement.
thorn is used throughout for the 'th graph'.
