# How to bold (\textbf) an entire example in gb4e?

I am presenting linguistic examples using gb4e. For one example, I would like to make the entire example bold, either the source utterance or the entire thing (including gloss and free translation). When I compile the code below, the bolded example begins on on the line below the example number. I have many examples like this, and I need to bold one of four options in each one. How can I eliminate the extra line without applying \textbf to each individual word?

\documentclass[11pt,letterpaper]{article}
\usepackage{gb4e}
\begin{document}
\begin{exe}
\ex \textbf{
\gll sak=en du xu tat nanen chushma rughd.\\
we=\textsc{cl} with our father mother hot-spring went\\
\glt We went to the hot-springs with our parents.'
}
\ex
\gll sak=en du xu tat nanen chushma rughd.\\
we=\textsc{cl} with our father mother hot-spring went\\
\glt We went to the hot-springs with our parents.'
\end{exe}
\end{document}

i've not tried this, but perhaps \bfseries (since it doesn't take an argument) would have a more "enduring" result. –  barbara beeton Aug 23 '14 at 18:58

Change \textbf{...} by {\bfseries ...}.

\documentclass[11pt,letterpaper]{article}
\usepackage{gb4e}
\begin{document}
\begin{exe}
\ex {\bfseries
\gll sak=en du xu tat nanen chushma rughd.\\
we=\textsc{cl} with our father mother hot-spring went\\
\glt We went to the hot-springs with our parents.'
}
\ex
\gll sak=en du xu tat nanen chushma rughd.\\
we=\textsc{cl} with our father mother hot-spring went\\
\glt We went to the hot-springs with our parents.'
\end{exe}
\end{document}

If you need to combine \textbf with \textsc(necessarily) you should add something like \usepackage{bold-extra} in the preamble. (the result is not very good but it works).
