What in the world are those crazy people at Logos doing now? What is The Lexham Analytical Lexicon of the Greek New Testament? Why another lexicon?
There are a few reasons, actually. Here are three of them.
First, this lexicon takes advantage of the classification in Louw & Nida’s Greek-English Lexicon based on Semantic Domains and offers definitions of each lemma broken into the different senses used in the Greek New Testament, as shown below.
Second, this lexicon lists every instance of every word in the NA27/UBS4 Greek New Testament classified by Louw-Nida sense. Why is this important? It means that you can be in the Greek New Testament, KeyLink into the Lexham Analytical Lexicon, and (particularly if you’re using the Active Reference Visual Filter) note the classification of the instance from which you KeyLinked.
Third, The Lexham Analytical Lexicon of the Greek New Testament is an analytical lexicon. That means that in addition to all lemma forms of each NT word, each inflected form is included as well. Again, why is this important? It is important because the Lexham Analytical Lexicon can be a target both for the Greek New Testament and also for other Greek text outside of morphologically tagged resources. It means that if you see text of the Greek NT quoted in, say, Word Biblical Commentary, you can right-click and keylink on the Greek word and (likely) end up at the correct article in the Lexham Analytical Lexicon. You can see how the entry looks below. From the inflected form, one can click on the link to go to the full article of the word within the Lexham Analytical Lexicon.
The Lexham Analytical Lexicon to the Greek New Testament is a great complement to the Lexham Greek-English Interlinear of the New Testament and is designed to provide keylinking help when keylinking from text that is not morphologically tagged—like commentaries, as described in the third point above.
