double compartment 'a' used throughout. The head stroke sometimes appears detached.
'a' is straight-sided with horizontal cross-bar.
only this version of upper case 'A' is used on this folio.
'd's are looped and evenly formed. The lower bowl is often angular.
the loop is generally of horizontal aspect and tends to lie across the lower lobe.
the loops of the two 'd's are squashed to line up with the round 'e's which in turn are very similar to the 'd' graph.
the lower compartment of 'g' almost always appears to be in advance of the upper compartment.
because of the position of the lower compartment, the graph itself appears to lean backwards.
the tail of 'h' usually ends just below the level of the stem.
on occasions, the scribe extends the tail of 'h' horizontally beneath previous graphs.
'H' at the beginning of a line with wider curve on the tail.
long 'r' is used throughout in all positions.
final 'r' generally has a slight flick upwards at the end of the shoulder.
'z'-shaped 'r' is used after some vowels and round-bodied graphs. There is a curled otiose stroke from the lower left of the graph.
flourished 'r' for missing 'e'. The shoulder of 'r' is detached and the flourish curls up over the shoulder making almost a complete circle.
sigma 's' is used in initial position.
the most frequently used final 's' is 8-shaped.
occasionally the head-stroke of the graph curves upwards instead of closing to form an '8'.
long 's' is used only occasionally as the initial graph.
'w' is consistently formed. The left limb usually stands separate from the rest of the graph.
the top of 'w' is generally at the height of surrounding graphs.
sometimes, the second part of the graph looks as though it has slipped down the page.
Usage: With oute
upper case 'W' at the beginning of a line. The longer lead-in stroke is the only thing which might differentiate the graph from the lower case examples.
'y' often looks just like thorn and in many places it is difficult to distinguish them. Here the graph has no tail.
Usage: day by day
towards the lower part of the folio, occasional 'y's have tails.
|Thorn and Yogh|
almost no difference between this thorn and some of the examples of 'y'.
yogh is used as equivalent of both 'gh' and 'y'.
|Upper Case Letters|
Usage: I t
a very distinctive upper case 'I'.
