Similarly V frequently has gu for g in, for example, guarder and esguart. A and B normally have garder and esgart; C sometimes has guarder, and O goes its own way with guoverner and guarnisse. In a few instances MS B has a c cedilla. Some examples come where we would expect to find them in modern French: reçoive (fol. 182v), reçoit (fol. 187r), façon (fol. 190r)—but others do not: reçevoir, reçeoit (both fol. 187r). Consistency is not a feature. Take for example the oi and ei diphthongs. A almost always has deit whereas B and V regularly have doit, and C and O usually have doit.
