where 'a' is in initial position, the upper compartment tends not to be closed so that the graph appears to be more like a mini-version of the upper case graph.
in medial positions, 'a' tends to be a double compartment graph.
the two 'a's are seen in this example.
'd' is looped with the loop frequently extending back over previous letters.
'd' in final position with short tag.
abbreviation for 'quod' with tagged 'd'.
the scribe uses both double compartment and tailed 'g', seemingly with no preference as to position.
a double compartment 'g' used here in final position.
sometimes the tail of 'h' is curtailed.
upper case graph at the beginning of a line with foot to the stem and loop to the left side of the stem in the left margin.
long 'r' does not appear on this folio as an initial letter but that would be the form most likely to be used.
long 'r' in final position.
a version of 'z'-shaped 'r' is also used in final position.
the fork of long 'r' often lines up with the lower level of surrounding graphs.
sigma 's' is used in initial and final positions.
long 's' is used in medial positions.
upper case 'S' at the beginning of a line of Latin text.
'w's are fairly even in shape but the size may vary. The initial 'w' here is not much bigger than the graphs which follow whereas the scribe often enlarges 'w' both in initial position and medially.
'w' in final position.
the size of 'w' in relation to surrounding letters is clearly seen in this example.
'y' usually has a left arm which descends vertically and is connected by an almost invisible hair-line stroke to the right arm.
the curve of the tail varies. Here it describes a grand arc.
|Thorn and Yogh|
this scribe uses thorn occasionally mainly for abbreviations as seen here.
yogh is used as equivalent of both 'y' and the gutteral sounds.
