single compartment 'a' with hairline head-stroke is used most of the time.
this cursive form of 'a' is also used as the lower case graph as well as for the upper case version.
both versions used in this example.
both looped and unlooped 'd' are used by the scribe.
in final position the looped version is often used and the loop is sometimes extended beyond the graph.
the upper case graph.
'g' is tailed and sometimes the tail completes a circle back to the left side of the body of the graph.
the loop of the tail curves round to form the head-stroke.
the very cursive 'h' which almost appears to be lying on its side in some examples.
the tail-stroke turns counter-clockwise and continues up to join to the next graph.
the upper case graph with foot at the base of the ascender.
'z'-shaped 'r' is the only graph used for the lower case letter in all positions.
upper case graph at the beginning of a line.
long 's' is used in initial and medial positions.
a six-shaped graph is used in final position.
the thick stem and dominance of the 'long 's' may be seen in comparison with the following 'y'.
the double 'v'-shaped 'w' has quite a lateral spread.
in initial position, 'w' frequently has a curved approach stroke.
the upper case graph is exactly the same as the lower case letter.
'y' is almost always dotted.
the graph often gives the impression of being squashed.
|Thorn and Yogh|
thorn is exactly the same as the 'y' graph and is also dotted, as is 'y'.
yogh is used as equivalent of the 'z' sound of plurals, and also of 'y'.
