What are the most common symbols or words used after difficult words in a text to refer a reader to a glossary for a definition?

  • I've mostly seen: *, #, ▫. – mikhailcazi Sep 23 '13 at 10:51
  • You can put a * symbol in front of the word and at the end of the text mention a note that : * Please refer glossary for definition – Sweet72 Sep 23 '13 at 12:43

I've seen people using

Superscript [1], [2]...if there is more than one, and the information can be in the footnote or glossary.

Or parenthesis (refer to glossary)
