The page proofs were available at AAR/SBL last November and copies of a few
sample articles were made available at a panel discussion of BDAG which was
held during those meetings. It does actually exist! It is worth the wait!

One of the best new features, in my opinion, is the provision of
descriptions of the meanings of words and not just an English translation.
One of the speakers at the panel was Eugene Nida and when Fred Danker spoke
at the end of the panel presentation he thanked Nida for making available
the material in Louw and Nida for incorporation into BDAG.

A variety of fonts are used which make the articles much easier to use.
Professor Danker told me that the complexity of the fonts was one of the
reasons for the delay.

Another sign that it exists is the notice Chicago Press has sent out to
those who have preordered. The price will now be $85 rather than $65.
