the scribe's double compartment 'a' used throughout is consistent.
upper case 'A' in this form with dot or pen-stroke in the centre is also consistently used.
unlooped 'd' is used throughout. The down-stroke is straight and thick.
on some folios, notably closer to the beginning, the hand is more precise and the lobe is formed with two strokes joined by hairlines.
'g' is double compartment but with lower compartment forming a triangle joined to the upper compartment with a hairline.
'g' in final position attracts a vertical tag.
the upper case version of the graph.
lower case 'h' comes in a number of forms. This example occurs later in the manuscript and is more casually formed than the version shown in 2.
earlier in the manuscript 'h' is formed with a detached head-stroke and the graph appears much more formal than the later examples.
'h' following 'c' and 't' is crossed.
a more elaborate upper case letter.
modern 'r' is used throughout in every position including after 'o'.
'r' in final position with flourish.
the second 'r' is set higher above the line than the first.
long 's' is always used in initial and medial positions.
the scribe uses a variety of 's's in final position.
an unusual form of 's'.
the scribe also has a number of variations in his 'w' graph. This example with 'B'-shaped element to the right is found in the more formal script from earlier in the manuscript.
a more cursive secretary version used later.
separate left limb with angled foot.
an upper case 'W' reflecting the form in version 1 but taller.
the tail of 'y' is always straight, leaving the body of the graph at a forty-five degree angle.
'y' with curved macron above with dot for missing final 'm'.
a larger example of version 2 for the upper case graph, with single protuberance in the middle of the left limb.
|Thorn and Yogh|
thorn is used frequently.
the stem of thorn is thick and straight and does not taper.
yogh is also used frequently as equivalent to 'y' and 'gh'.
|Upper Case Letters|
many of the scribe's upper case letters have a dot somewhere in the interior of the graph.
ascenders on the top lines of folios are frequently decorated with faces as well as decorative patterns.
