In a story which I am working on the narrator uses the scientific names for several creatures. True to the nomenclature of the scientific community, the names are presented in italics. I also, however have a couple of instances where I want to italicize a single word for emphasis. The obvious issue is that I am then using italics to denote two different things. Is it kosher in this case, or is there a better way to show the narrator is emphasizing a single word?
