    1. Do we need a separate microformat for text which should not be translated, such as "teacher, teacher" in:

      The Great Tit, Parus major, has a song that sounds like "teacher, teacher"

      but which is not otherwise a component of a microformat? (Or maybe that should just be a style, attribute, or element, in HTML5).

      (Comment by Bbos:) Probably not needed for HTML5, which has a built-in translate=no attribute. But for HTML4 it might be useful to declare its predecessor, class=notranslate, to be a microformat on its own. See Using HTML's translate attribute.
