Seeing the world in Greek

How can I best learn new vocabulary items? What aids are there and what pitfalls should be avoided? How does a beginner learn to use a lexicon?

A few clips on the theme of washing again:

These videos are specifically derived from quotes from ancient texts, put together with modern pictures. The stills are hotlinked from the UK telegraph and pinimg.com

There are three words there, which are either not used in the NT or used with an unfamiliar sense.

1)
ἅλς means "the sea", rather than "salt" as it does in the New Testament.

2)
παίω, (παϝίω, cf. Lat. pavio), strike, smite (the 5 NT uses are in this meaning); ram into (strike with the whole body(weight) directly, rather with the body weight behind the hand, etc.).

Here is a picture of a dolphin playfully buffeting a canoe

3)
γομφώματα < γομφόω, fasten with bolts or nails (especially used of boat-building).

Here is a picture of a wooden boat as it was being constructed using traditional skills and methods.

Here are some modern "age of steel" rivets (γόμφοι σιδηροῖ)

Here is a picture of the hull of a modern ship using rivets:

A possible effect of the pressure of a blow to the hull, by which ἐλύθη τὰ γομφώματα (ἐλύθησαν οἱ γόμφοι).

Another video based on a different passage:
