In the first line, Alice and Eve alternate strictly in singing, so their
lyrics get collapsed:

   ALICE   EVE       ALICE   EVE
   maybe   that the  second  words are

After the manual line break, Alice cuts off Eve with a bit of overlap.
Their lyrics stay on different lines, which makes sense:

   EVE           ALICE
                 Shut up, you fool!

Would be worth a "selected snippet" in NR 2.1.2 Techniques specific to
lyrics, Placing lyrics vertically?


I don't understand this request for a 'snippet', are you saying it
already exists as a snippet and you want it in the NR or that you want
a new snippet created *as well*?

If it is the latter, and someone can give me a 'clear' explanation of
what this snippet shows (so I can write a concise texidoc entry) I can
arrange that, else if the snippet already exists tell me the name of
it and I can add it very easily.

Searching the LSR does not return it, and I think it is worth to have it in the NR.

I would sort of call it a "partcombine" for lyrics: it often happens that a soloist shares a staff with a choir part (let's say the diva and the soprani) when they sing alternatively, or two characters like in Reedmace Star's example. The fact is that Lily place /two/ lines of lyrics when the change appears on the same system.
