"An unusual Yogh in the Bestiary manuscript - a palaeographical note"
J. P. Gumbert, P. M. Vermeer
Medium Aevum, 40:1, 1971, 56-59
 

A discussion of the use of the 'yogh' character in British Library, Arundel MS 292, which is differentiated from the letter 'g'.

"A tentative conclusion would be that the script of Arundel 292 is a result of an attempt (single-handed, or restricted to a very small group) to lessen the graphemic distance between vernacular and Latin script, by choosing or creating shapes for the typically English graphemes which are as close as possible to Latin ones." - authors
