# Vertical top align gloss with \gll from gb4e in tabular

I looked through the questions but couldn't find someone with the same problem.

\documentclass[12pt,a5paper]{book}

\usepackage{gb4e}
\usepackage{tabularx}

\begin{document}

\begin{tabularx}{\linewidth}{ r X }
\large{\textbf{1}} & \\ \hline
\small{\textbf{\textsf{EN}}} & The weather is nice today. \\[1ex]
\small{\textbf{\textsf{FR}}} & {\gll Il fait beau aujourd'hui. \\
[il fɛ bo oʒuʁdɥi] \\}
\end{tabularx}

\end{document}


This puts the french sentence and gloss too low, and I want it vertically aligned with the FR on the left.

Any suggestions? Thanks!

This answer is a long time coming, but the solution is simple: there is a patched version of cgloss4e (which is the glossing macros part of gb4e) written by Alexis Dimitriadis, and available on his website (not on CTAN, unfortunately). It is called and can be used as a drop-in replacement. It also has some other niceties. You can get it here. I use it in all my documents.

Put it in your local texmf folder, and you load it after you load gb4e. I've also added some code from the array package to increase your table spacing without having to manually use a space after your rows. (Compile with XeLaTeX or LuaLaTeX for the phonetics in the source.).

\documentclass[12pt,a5paper]{book}
\usepackage{libertine}
\usepackage{gb4e,cgloss}
\usepackage{tabularx}
\usepackage{array}

\begin{document}
\setlength{\extrarowheight}{1ex}
\begin{tabularx}{\linewidth}{ r X }
\large{\textbf{1}} & \\ \hline
\small{\textbf{\textsf{EN}}} & The weather is nice today. \\
\small{\textbf{\textsf{FR}}} & {\gll Il fait beau aujourd'hui. \\
[il fɛ bo oʒuʁdɥi] \\}\\
\end{tabularx}

\end{document}
