Hi David,

How do I adjust the space between two syllables/words that are tied? LyricSpace.minimum-distance works for words that are not tied.

\override Lyrics.LyricHyphen.minimum-distance = #2

Hope that helps!

Thanks Kieren, but I wasn’t clear enough in my initial request for
help.  I want to increase the space inside the lyric tie.  So if I
have “some~word”, I’d like to have a little more space between “some”
and “word”.  LyricHyphen.minimum-distance doesn’t do that.

LyricText.word-space is what you want to adjust. Note that it doesn't stretch the size of the tie.

\version "2.19.82"
\new Lyrics \lyricmode {
  \override LyricText.word-space = #0 o~o
  \override LyricText.word-space = #1 o~o
  \override LyricText.word-space = #2 o~o
