There is a predefined macro \slurDown that sets the corresponding
property. This and several other macros are defined in the file
ly/, but it seems thay are not mentioned in anywhere
in the documentation.

\property Score . LyricText \override #'font-relative-size = #1
(default is relative size = 0). However, it shouldn't be possible 
to mess up the alignment by just setting a font selection property, 
could you send us a small example of what you tried.
