this is an 'a' in the scribe's display script at the top of f126v. It is obviously his usual form of 'a'.
almost all the single compartment 'a's on this folio have had an upper compartment added to them. On f131v, the scribe has mainly formed a double compartment graph. It is possible therefore that he began his stint using a single compartment 'a' but was informed part of the way through copying that he should conform with the double compartment graphs used by the first two scribes.
even some of the upper case 'A's have had tops added to them.
'd' is always a looped graph.
in final position 'd' occasionally has a downward extension from the looped stroke.
an interesting form of upper case 'D'.
secretary 'g' is used almost all the time. The tail-stroke may be very short as in this example.
a very occasional anglicana 'g' may be found.
'g' in final position sometimes has a vertical tag attached to the horizontal hairline stroke.
as with the first scribe 'h' may have a triangular loop at the head or, as in version 2, the arched head-stroke is open.
'h' is sometimes crossed after 't'.
the upper case graph extends the open head-stroke of version 2.
this scribe uses modern 'r' exclusively in all positions. He does not even use 'z'-shaped 'r' after 'o'.
long 's' is used in initial and medial positions.
kidney-shaped 's' is used in final position.
a rather peculiar sigma 's' may also be found occasionally in final position.
most of the scribe's 'w's are of this formation with looped heads and very similar to the 'w's of the other two scribes.
lower down on the folio, the scribe occasionally uses this more cursive 'w'. They occur in clusters, almost as if he has forgotten his style sheet momentarily.
the shape of 'y' varies little.
the tail of 'y' is short and thick, turns swiftly counter-clockwise and tapers off.
|Thorn and Yogh|
both thorn and yogh are used rarely.
the stem of thorn is thick with no taper.

|Upper Case Letters|
an interesting upper case 'I' with 'V'-shaped head.
