double compartment 'a' which frequently appears with no separation between upper and lower compartments.
several slightly different versions of this shape of upper case 'A' may be found on the folio examined.
'd' may be securely looped as in this version with angular lower lobe.
'd' may also have an 'open' centre.
sometimes the scribe squashes his graphs so that they appear stunted versions of his script.
this is a fairly robust form of 'g' compared with some of the examples seen on this folio.
here the lower compartment has all but disappeared
again the lower compartment is very small compared with the upper compartment.
neither upper nor lower compartment is closed in this version.
'h' is generally fairly consistent in formation with variation in the length of tail. However, see versions 3 and 4.
head-stroke through shoulder, limb and tail are a single stroke in this example.
the same seems to apply here too.
modern 'r' is used in all positions and is the preferred graph.
long 'r' is also used on occasion.
z'-shaped 'r', with and without otiose stroke is used mainly after 'o' and occasionally follows other graphs such as 'w'.
'r' in final position with flourish.
this peculiar version of sigma 's' is used in initial and in final position.
a sort-of '8'-shaped version of 's' in final position.
long 's' is also used initially and medially.
serpentine 'S' with long horizontal base stroke.
the scribe has a variety of 'w' graphs.
upper case graph tinged with yellow at the beginning of a line.
the right limb turns to connect at the fork (here it is missed), and continues as the tail in a straight line at an oblique angle.
as with the unusual variations in other of the scribe's graphs, 'y' also sometimes has a peculiarity. The left limb is often curved from the left at the top to the right at the fork.
|Thorn and Yogh|
Usage: bereþ þe
two different shapes for thorn in this example.
yet another version of the graph. Thorn is used frequently by the scribe.
yogh is used as equivalent of both 'gh' and 'y'.
