In Gothic Littera Bastarda the half 'r' conjoins with bows that appear on the right side of letters, like 'b', 'o', and 'e'. Additionally, when letters with facing bows are placed next to one another, as in 'b-d', 'e-d', 'b-g', etc., the central portion of the bow can completely overlap, resulting in what is called "biting bows".
