Less intra-word space in lyrics

Noeck
Hi,

How can I move syllables closer together?

In the example, the word "przyjaciele" (one word) is written like "przy
ja cie le" and looks like four words. When I remove the minimum-length
override, I get hyphens like "przy-ja-cie-le". Both versions don't look
good to me. I would prefer something like "przyja - ciele" or even
"przyjaciele" centered under these notes.


MWE (the attached image is not from this code but from the real song):

\version "2.18.2"

\paper {
  line-width = 55\mm
  ragged-right = ##f
}

\score {
  <<
    \new Staff \new Voice = "v" { \autoBeamOff e'8 e' d' c'}
    \new Lyrics \lyricsto v { przy -- ja -- cie -- le }
  >>

  \layout {
    \override Lyrics.LyricHyphen.minimum-length = 1.0
  }
}

Cheers,
Joram

I guess this is the answer to it (and the whole thread):
