Your suggestion points the student in a very helpful direction. I have used
a similar concept in asking students to ask "What does this word express,
all possibilities and then in this context?"
The one suggestion I would have for your question is if it would be better
to ask "this is one of the words one may use WHEN TALKING ABOUT _____." The
slight change reflects the "semantic domain" approach of Louw and Nida's
What do you think?
