- The glossary is arranged alphabetically.
- Direct links to cross-referenced items in the glossary are now available (this does not apply to the words 'pidgin' and 'creole' because of the high frequency with which they appear).
- Most entries lack exemplification, but in a few cases, examples are given in parentheses, without the use of e.g..
- At the end of each entry which was copied verbatim from a text, there is a source reference shortened to a code letter (the author's first initial) and a page number. If two authors have the same initial, a second and/or third letter is used for one of them (i.e., Ca for Carroll and C for Crystal; M for Mühlhäusler and Muf for Mufwene). There is a hypertext link to references at the end of each of the glossary sections.
