    <p style="text-align: left;">Nemeth Code provides specific symbols and guidelines for transcription of alphabets including English, German, Greek, Hebrew and Russian (Cyrillic). How is the Nemeth issue of a single, Spanish letter addressed in Spanish Nemeth text—for example: to distinguish letter ‘y’ from the Spanish word ‘y’? The Spanish math book, in this situation, is for a student who reads Spanish in a classroom that is conducted in Spanish, in the USA. I’m not sure if my question is more appropriate for Foreign Language, or Nemeth forum, so I am posting in both places. Thank you! Claire Egan</p>


    As the literary text of a math book is done in UEB, you would follow UEB rules for the Foreign Language. If you happen to have the Spanish word "y" within the Nemeth, put a single-word switch indicator on it and treat it as you would if it were within the literary text (just as you would with the English word "and").

    Thank you, that makes sense and is easily accomplished. —Claire Egan
