the use of the single and double compartment 'a' is fairly evenly divided.
double compartment 'a' looks rather strange but seems to have been executed with a looping stroke from the lobe of 'a', curling up to make the top compartment, and finishing with a horizontal to move on to the next graph.
an 'a' in the scribe's display script.
upper case 'A's have loops which extends back making the whole graph appear to lean.
'd' is always looped but this example has a sharper than average lower lobe.
almost all final 'd's have a downward extension to the finishing stroke.
'd' in the scribe's display script.
abbreviative mark for the plural added on to the final 'd'.
anglicana 'g' has a squarish upper compartment and a longer oval-shaped lower compartment.
on more than one occasion, the lower compartment is not closed.
'g' often seems to lean forward.
the stem and head of 'h' lean forwards.
the tail-stroke sometimes finishes in a gentle curve beneath the graph, but sometimes continues in a loop back to the body of the graph.
long 'r' is used in all positions. The graph is extremely long.
after 'o', 'z'-shaped 'r' is used.
long initial 'r' to begin the first word, and exaggerated finish to the final 'r' on the line below.
long 's' used in initial and medial positions. The head-stroke is separate and horizontal.
sigma 's' is used in final position.
kidney-shaped 's' is used in the scribe's display script.
splaying of the double 's'.
'w' is mainly in the form found in the other three versions. However, there is a single example of this looped 'w' on this folio.
the left arm of 'w' is much taller than the rest of the graph.
upper case 'W' at the beginning of a line with left arm extending way out into left margin.
'y' and thorn are virtually indistinguishable.
as mentioned under 'y', thorn is an almost identical graph.
