A quick question about a term being used frequently on the list of late.
My 13 year ago Greek classes provided me with an intro. to Koine, and I
have tried to sharpen my skills by further study. This list, with the
opportunity to ask, what are undoubtedly, elementary questions, has been
invaluable. I assume that by the term "Semantic Domain," which is the
peculiar approach of Louw & Nida according to the posts, one means the
spectrum or range of meanings a particular word may have.
