double compartment 'a' is used throughout. The size of the compartments varies from graph to graph.
one version of upper case 'A' on this folio.
the more commonly used upper case 'A'.
looped 'd' used throughout in the text.
the upper loop may be contained above the graph or may extend backwards over preceding graphs.
unlooped 'd' used in the gloss in the right margin, also in the hand of the scribe.
upper case 'D' at the beginning of a line and tipped with yellow.
double compartment 'g' is used throughout. The lower compartment is usually a little in advance of the upper compartment, giving the graph a tilted appearance.
when 'g' is in final position, the horizontal slash from the top of the upper compartment is slightly extended and angles down.
'h' has a straight stem sometimes leaning slightly towards the right.
the head-stroke is occasionally set at an angle.
again 'h' is at an angle. The tail stroke varies in length.
upper case 'H' at the beginning of a line and tipped with yellow.
modern 'r' is used in all positions except after 'o'.
'r' in final position with upward turn, perhaps as a flourish for a missing final 'e'.
'z'-shaped 'r' is used after 'o'.
upper case 'R'.
long 's' is always used in initial and medial positions.
the scribe occasionally uses a semi-kidney-shaped 's' in final position. However, his main graph for final 's' is the '8'-shaped version seen in 3.
'8'-shaped final 's'.
upper case 'S' tipped with yellow.
the scribe's 'w's are very variable but the basic formation is of a straight left limb with fine stroke to close the head, a straight middle stroke with head-stroke curling over to the right and a 'B'-shaped element to finish.
'w' in final position.
the scribe's 'w's are sometimes not very well formed.
upper case 'W' which is the same as the lower case version.
y' has a curved left limb and a tail which varies in length but which is generally shorter rather than longer.
a very short tail indeed.
|Thorn and Yogh|
thorn is used on most occasions to replace 'th'. However, at the beginnings of lines 'TH' is used rather than thorn.
yogh is also used frequently. It is equivalent to 'y' and also to 'gh' in some words.
