# Extra space preceding change of language in XəLaΤεχ Polyglossia

I am writing in Portuguese with some English words thrown in. The issue is that when a line with English text breaks, the English text gets preceded by extra spacing:

\documentclass {scrbook}

\usepackage {polyglossia}

\setmainlanguage {portuguese}
\setotherlanguage {english}

\begin {document}
no \textenglish {Hillsdale college}, na primavera de 2006, e sou grato

• I get no extra spacing with version v1.47 of polyglossia (which was released not that long ago). There was an issue with version 1.46 (github.com/reutenauer/polyglossia/issues/356 and linked issues) that could cause unwanted white space with some language switching commands. Consider updating your system to get polyglossia v1.47. – moewe Feb 9 at 6:59
