This question doesn't quite get answered anywhere, but it seems to fit in here. How do you work with a gloss definition of a foreign word or just a definition, because it seems to me, that there is a combination of italic, quotation marks, or perhaps other type of bracket/slashmarks. For example, these two sentences: In Russian, the word, собака, /sobaka/ means "dog." (Ordinarily I would italicize the Russian word, and put the transliteration within the / / and put quotation marks around the definition.) I am not sure if it should be the double or single quotation marks. Then, this type: The word, definition, means, "to tell what something means." Again, with the English word, definition, italicized, but the definition in quotation marks. Correct?
