I apologize first if I shouldn't have started this in another thread, but I thought this could be a completely topic. With the mention of singular quotations in another thread I just made, I was wondering, is it possible to use singular quotes to emphasis a word in the middle of a speech or dialogue. Example: "So how has 'president' been treating you?" I know it's gramatically incorrect to write that, but I can imagine someone talking like that. Can I use singular quotations to emphasis the word president or will it stand on its on without the quotes. Or is there a better way of doing it?
