Can I stop adjacent words merging to form phrases?

Yes, you can change this setting from the reader page or from the Web Reader.

From the reader page


Open the sidebar, go to the AA tab, and set Translation Behavior to Don't Merge.


From the Web Reader


Open the Menu, and with Translation Settings, set Merge Phrases to Don't Merge.


Translating Phrases in Don't Merge mode


Even within Don't Merge mode, you can still drag across a phrase to translate it, but now you have the choice of translating adjacent words separately.
