# How do I mark text as never to be emphasized? [duplicate]

An \emph inside another cancels the emphasis. But what if I want to make sure something is never emphasized, even if the surrounding emphasis is removed? \textrm doesn't turn off ItalicFeatures defined for the font family.

• @leandriis, thanks. The answer is \textup. – Toothrot Nov 21 '17 at 9:55
• it doesn't really matter, but "\emph inside another cancels the emphasis" is the wrong way to think of it, better to say \emph always emphasises the text by choosing a visually distinct font style" – David Carlisle Nov 21 '17 at 10:35
