<p style="text-align: left;">Hi Cindy,</p>
<p style="text-align: left;">The Interim of Foreign Language 1.6 considers important the use of ELI to distinguish letters from words.</p>
<p style="text-align: left;">In a Nemeth within UEB transcription I have labels: a, b, c, etc. and coordinates y, x.</p>
Do I use the grade 1 only on the y to distinguish from the Spanish word y. Or do I use it for EVERY standing alone Spanish letter.
Sorry for the delay, but I wanted to communicate with some committee members as a Foreign Language guidebook has yet to be published to handle such matters. Our consensus is:
Since the book seems to be all in Spanish, the same rules apply to English and single letters: any letter such as "y" that can be misread as a word in Spanish should have a grade one indicator. So, yes on "y" and no on "x".
