The purpose of including a glossary at the back of a text is to provide key terms and definitions for the layperson reading the text while maintaining the flow for highly educated readers who do not need these definitions. A glossary should be included if the whole text contains 6 or more terms that are unlikely to be understood by all readers. The terms in a glossary should be listed alphabetically for ease of finding.
