double compartment 'a' is used throughout.
the upper compartment is more usually smaller than the lower one, as in this example.
the scribe has several upper case 'A's.
'd' is an oddly shaped graph with oblique down-stroke rather than a conventional loop. However, the scribe adds two angled strokes to form a triangular addition at the head. It may be the initiaion of the first stroke.
where the preceding graph takes up the space at the head, the scribe does not bother to make any further addition.
the upper case 'D'.
on f8r, close to the beginning of the manuscript, nearly all the scribe's 'g's are tailed, with or without a hairline to join back to the upper lobe.
further on in the manuscript, the scribe's graphs are a more conventional double compartment graph.
occasionally the lower compartment is not closed.
the tail descending from the limb may leave at an oblique angle as here.
the limb and tail-stroke may also be gently curved as in this example.
an example of upper case 'H' from later in the manuscript.
a more elaborate version found at the beginning of the manuscript.
long 'r' is used throughout in all positions. However, the graph rarely extends below the line although it is still beneath the lower level of following graphs.
'r' standing on the line.
'z'-shaped 'r' follows 'o' and round-bodied graphs.
long 's' is used in initial and medial positions.
a form of 6-shaped 's' is used in final position.
's' in final position, basically of the 6-shaped variety but with scooped head-stroke with long curved extension. This word is not at the end of a line.
the middle limb extends well above the left limb. A separate stroke is added to the middle arm turning to the right and ending above the 'B'-shaped element which finishes the graph.
'W' in first position in a line. It is exactly comparable to the lower case versions.
'y' has a short straight tail and is always topped by a comma-type of stroke.
thorn is used frequently. The stem is always set at an angle.
thorn is always used for the ending in the present tense of verbs.
thorn frequently replaces 'th' throughout.
|Upper Case Letters|
an interesting and unusual form of upper case 'B'.
an unusual upper case 'I' with three or four 'fins' to the left of the stem.
