both single and double compartment 'a's are used. The double compartment version, seen here tends to have an upper compartment which is larger than the lower compartment.
single compartment 'a' is angular.
the scribe has several upper case 'A's. This version has a square lower lobe with horned effect at the left side.
the scribe also uses this version of upper case 'A'.
looped 'd' is used throughout. Both lower lobe and upper loop are angular in appearance.
'd' with unfinished upper loop which resolves on the lower left side of the graph.
'd' in final position with descending tag.
the 'd's are not necessarily of the same size.
double compartment 'g' is used throughout.
he upper case graph.
h' sometimes has a slight angled foot at the base of the stem.
the limb descends in a gentle curve. The tail-stroke is fine and may continue to curve in a clockwise direction, or as here may turn counter-clockwise.
'h' after 't' is frequently crossed.
upper case 'H' with long extended tail which sweeps round clockwise and completes a circle back to the stem.
both modern 'r' and long 'r' are used and alternate in every position.
long 'r' used here in initial position.
long 'r' in final position with extended horizontal stroke from the shoulder of the graph.
'z'-shaped 'r' follows 'o' and may appear with, but mostly without, the otiose stroke descending diagonally in a straight line from the lower left of the graph.
sigma 's' is used in initial and also in final positions.
kidney shaped 's' is used in final position. However it may also be found occasionally as the initial letter (see 'slombred' on f1r).
'8'-shaped 's' is also used in final position.
this version of 's' with scooped and extended head-stroke with attached tag is also used in final position.
'w' generally has closed loops at the head with angled feet and the 'B'-shaped element to finish.
occasionally the head of the left limb of the graph is not closed and curves to the right over the rest of the graph.
the left limb of 'y' is vertical. The fork occurs at the base of surrounding graphs at line level.
Usage: y saued
the tail of 'y' is a fine stroke curving first clockwise then turning counter-clockwise. 'y' is sometimes dotted.
|Thorn and Yogh|
thorn is mainly used for the abbreviation of the definite article. However, it is used occasionally as a present tense verb ending.
