single compartment secretary 'a' used throughout.
the two sides of the graph are connected by a hairline stroke.
the scribe mixes secretary and anglicana forms, so although unlooped 'd' is used on most occasions, looped 'd' also puts in an appearance occasionally.
looped 'd' in final position.
from the top line of verse with the illumination tangling with the stem of 'd'.
secretary tailed 'g' with horizontal cross-stroke at the head.
occasionally the head of the down-stroke at the right of the graph stands well above the lobe. Here, in final position, the horizontal cross-stroke at the head has a tag attached.
the down-stroke frequently begins above the body of the graph.
'h' may have a wide closed head-loop which returns to the shoulder.
the loop may also be a continuation from the previous graph.
crossed 'h' after 't'.
upper case graph at the beginning of a line.
'r' is mainly 'z'-shaped.
upper case 'R', difficult to entangle at the beginning of a line.
long 's' is used in initial and medial positions.
kidney-shaped 's' and sigma 's' are used in final position.
the thick downward curving stroke to follow 's' is not expanded into 'e'.
again a mixture of anglicana and secretary 'w's on this folio.
an initial 'w' with curved approach stroke to begin.
image to show the size of 'w' in the middle of a word, compared with the size of surrounding graphs.
a distinctive 'y' with parallel strokes to form the body and a tail which curves counter-clockwise immediately without any form of clockwise movement.
|Thorn and Yogh|
thorn is only used for the contraction of 'that'. But 'th' is also used for the same word.
yogh is used as representative of the 'y' sound.
'e' is frequently formed from two separate strokes. The back, or stem of the graph is attached to the previous letter and the head-stroke, is separate and connects with the following graph.
here, the down-stroke of 'd' closes off the semi-circular head-stroke of 'e'.
