“Users of the Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament Based on Semantic Domains …, also produced by Louw and Nida, will welcome this analysis of the lexicological principles which underlie that ground-breaking work in biblical studies. As for those who have given that lexicon only a passing glance, Lexical Semantics renews the invitation to keep pace with rapid developments in semiotics and urges all biblical interpreters to face the implications of the inquiry it embraces. This latest study is ideally structured as a textbook for a unit in New Testament interpretation. Not only does it outline the fundamental principles used in the semantic analysis of lexemes, but it systematizes methods employed in determining their meanings and relations to one another. … This lexicographer-turned-reviewer knows from experience in the revision of Walter Bauer’s lexicon over a period of thirty-five years how much on target are Louw and Nida.” —Frederick W.
