double compartment 'a' used in this section.
where 'a' is the second letter, it often drops below the level of the first graph. It may be seen on several occasions on this folio.
'd' has an angular lobe and loop which extends back just beyond the body of the graph.
tagged 'd' in this abbreviation.
possibly an upper case graph but apart from size, not significantly different from the lower case letter.
double compartment anglicana 'g' is used as well as the tailed versions in 3 and 4.
rather strange and wobbly versions of the 'g' with the first example not sure whether it is double or tailed 'g'.
tailed 'g' with tail extending back in a horizontal line.
Usage: þou goste
some of the scribe's 'h's have a foot at the base of the stem.
the limb may be straight, as here, or slightly curved as in version 1.
occasionally the tail flicks counter-clockwise to finish.
crossed 'h' is usual in this name.
use of 'r' is mixed. Both long and modern 'r' are found with long 'r' probably in the majority.
long 'r' in final position with flourish.
modern 'r' in final position with flourish.
on this folio 'z'-shaped 'r' is found after 'o', 'e' and 'i'. However, modern 'r' also follows 'e'.
long 's' used most frequently as the initial letter, though see version 3.
kidney-shaped 's' always used in final position.
sigma 's' as the initial graph.
the scribe has several versions of 'w'. Here the extended left limb has a long arching approach stroke.
'w' with closed head-loops.
at the beginning of a line but must not be taken as the scribe's preference for the upper case version.
the tail of 'y' varies in length at random.
the superscript letter is placed above the thorn.
the only other example of thorn on this folio. There are no yoghs.
