double compartment 'a' is used throughout.
usually the upper compartment is smaller than the lower one.
the head of 'a' is usually above the level of surrounding graphs.
Usage: do wel
'd' has a generous loop above a smaller hooked lobe (see version 3).
sometimes the loop of 'd' is not closed.
a rather larger loop for this version of 'd'.
a 'd' with reverse formation of the loop, in the display script of the scribe used for the Latin headings.
'g' is a double compartment graph with a triangular lower lobe.
Usage: to gedris
an incomplete triangle for the lower compartment.
'h' has a triangular shaped head-stroke.
the tail stroke tapers in a gentle curve.
occasionally the tail is flicked counter-clockwise to finish.
long 'r' is used most of the time in all positions.
in final position 'r' is frequently flourished.
'z'-shaped 'r' is used after 'o' and round-bodied graphs.
modern 'r' is also used occasionally.
sigma 's' is used as well as long 's' in initial position. It is also used in final position.
8-shaped 's' is only used in final position.
long 's' is used initially and medially.
'w' is distinctive with the head-stroke of the left limb curving over the remainder of the graph.
the curving head-stroke from the left limb usually connects with the middle stroke or the 'B'-shaped element at the right.
'y' is frequently dotted.
the tail of 'y' does not usually extend far below the graph. It looks as though the scribe miscalculated the right stroke so added an 'extra' to join the two sides.
|Thorn and Yogh|
thorn is used on almost every occasion as a replacement for 'th'.
the lobe of thorn is sometimes as long as the stem.
yogh is used as equivalent of both 'gh' and also of 'y'.
