Thread: Semantic Domain Search?

  1. #1

    Default Semantic Domain Search?

    Can I right click on a Greek word and get the results of all instances of all the words in the semantic domain (say, from Louw-Nida)? If not, can we have that in some future release?

    If you have the lexicon browser set to L&N you can right click on the word and select, Lookup Lemma in Lexicon Browser. The Lexicon Browser will show up as a floating window.

    Well, it's not a single right-click search, but it is doable.
    You can use Chas' note to right click and find the domain in L&N for the word. (Or you can find it in the Analysis tab.) The reason to do this is only to find the sub/domain #s you will want to search.
    Now, in the command line, choose a Greek morphology version to search. (BGM or BNM)
    Next, right click in the command line and choose "Insert Louw Nida Domain Code"
    Now you can choose the domain or subdomain you want, choose Insert, and run the search.

    It would really be nice to simply right-click on a word, to automatically get the semantic range option, but this works just the same. I might note that in trying to search on a word that is found under multiple domains, things can get a bit messy. A right-click option could simply display the range for both domains, without duplicating entries.
