single compartment 'a' used throughout.
the compartment is sometimes squashed flatter as here.
the head of 'A' may be open or closed, forming a loop.
unlooped 'd' is used throughout. The lobe is squarish.
(first 'd') the lobe may appear square or more rounded, as in version 4.
'd' with tag is used only for abbreviated 'quod'.
Usage: good day
double compartment 'g' is used exclusively.
horizontal extension to the right from the middle of the upper lobe.
'g' in final position sometimes has a flourish which extends back over the top of the graph.
'h' is consistently formed. The limb is generally straight, thick and short with little or no curved tail.
the head stroke is also applied as a thickish curved stroke.
an interesting use of crossed 'h'.
upper case 'H' is the same as lower case, but bigger!
modern 'r' is used in all positions.
the link from stem to shoulder departs from the lower end of the stem.
'z'-shaped 'r' is used after 'o' and after some consonants.
flourish added to final 'r' which may be representative of a missing final 'e'. Examples where such flourishes occur are in the words 'her', 'our', 'ther' and 'fer'.
kidney-shaped 's' used exclusively in final position.
long 's' is used in initial and medial positions.
difficult to know whether or not this is sigma 's'. The scribe applies the ink quite thickly and it may just be an imperfectly formed kidney 's'.
upper case letter at the beginning of a line.
the formation of 'w' is fairly consistent.There is a single lobe to the right of the graph.
left and middle arms of the graph are usually more or less the same height. However, they stand above the level of surrounding letters.
'W' in an upper case position at the beginning of a line. There is no perceptible difference between upper and lower case, and in this example, 'W' appears smaller than other examples which occur in the middle of words.
the conventional shape of the scribe's 'y' graph.
(second 'y') many of the scribe's 'y's are sloppily formed suggesting hasty execution.
a very flattened version of the 'ra' abbreviation.
the scribe uses the macron to indicate missing 'n's and 'm's.
here the scribe has used the macron to indicate a missing 'm'.
