Question time :)
I am trying to work out a good way of emphasising certain sounds within individual words in the Yan-nhaŋu Learner’s Guide. The first draft had them circled, but that was very fiddly. We can’t use bold because al Yan-nhaŋu is in bold in the Learner’s Guide. Italics looks a bit weird. We can’t use underline because underlining marks retroflection in the orthography. And I don’t want to use small caps because it alters the letter shape a lot.
Here’s what I’ve come up with so far. This is an image saved from the pdf – sorry it’s a bit blurry, that’s Acrobat’s fault. The relevant sounds are a bit larger than the surrounding words.
Has anyone else done anything like this for a learner’s guide? How was it received? Any other suggestions?
Edit: maybe this is clearer:
