comment Add hyphenation pattern for word with special characters
I was hoping to find a way to do this without having to use macros as suggested by Mico, but it is of course a workaround that can be used. I want hyphenation to continue working also for normal words in parentheses, and as far as I understand, this would stop working with the solution suggested in the link in Dan's comment.

Yes, you are right, I want the right column to line-break. I tried adding \Huge before \strut, and also made the first word of the first line of the right column \Huge, but the left column ended up far too low compared to the right one. It seems that I have to adjust the strut to be in a smaller font if I have a larger font in my right column.

Why is it that if I increase the size of the right-hand column, the left-hand column (the one with the \entr command) does not follow in alignment, and why is it not possible to use \entr in both columns and thus align them? I do not follow exactly what happens when the columns are shifted as suggested in the answer, so please bear with me if I ask about things that might seem obvious.

Have I understood it correctly that the height of the strutbox \ht\strutbox minus another height \height (what is this) is used as a value for how much to shift the position, and an invisible character \strut (or \vphantom{Q}) is placed next to the text to be typeset, to make sure that the box around the typeset text has the same (minimum) height even if a short letter is used? Using \vphantom{Q} does not align it perfectly, but for the time being I have made a work-around by simply adding 1.5pt to the shift value (for the BIG entry only, the others now have a separate command).

Simple is always preferable, and I think that your approach is better than my minipages. Looking at the result, everything seems to work, with the minor quirk that the top of BIG is not perfectly aligned with the top of the text in the right-hand column. Even applying the \entr command to the right-hand column did not help (and also prevented \hfill from working). It is especially noticeable if the font of the first line of the right-hand column is made bigger. Although your example is definitely better than what I had, is there a way to improve the top alignment?
