where lower case 'a' is used it is always double compartment anglicana 'a'.
the scribe frequently uses this form of upper case 'A', for the letter in initial position as well as in the middle of words. It stands above the level of surrounding graphs.
word in the middle of a line yet still beginning with the upper case graph.
a slightly different upper case 'A' at the beginning of a line.
looped 'd' is used throughout.
the lower lobe of 'd' is triangular in shape.
'd' is consistently formed.
'g' is also consistently formed. It is always a double compartment anglicana 'g' with squarish upper compartment and a smaller, triangular lower compartment.
'g' in final position with extension of the horizontal lead-on stroke.
'h' is also neatly and consistently formed.
where 'h' follows 't' as here, or 'g' as in the next example, there is usually a horizontal line across the head of the graph.
upper case 'H' of different formation from the lower case graph.
both 'z'-shaped 'r' and modern 'r' are used by this scribe. They can both be found in all positions.
modern 'r' in final position.
a 'z'-shaped 'r' followed by a modern 'r'.
the upper case graph.
long 's' is used in initial and medial positions.
kidney-shaped 's' is used in final position.
just about visible is this upper case 'S' which looks rather kidney-shaped.
'w' is also consistently made.
an upper case 'W' which is just slightly larger than the lower case graph.
another consistently formed graph. The tail of 'y' is straight, set at an angle, with no turn to finish.
in the upper case position, the tail is slightly curved in a counter-clockwise direction.
on this folio, thorn is mainly used followed by a superscript letter to form a contraction of 'that' and 'the'.
the stem of thorn is set at a slight angle.
here thorn is used in initial position to replace 'th'.
