  1. I believe that Louw-Nida applies only to Greek. Why does the option exist on the pick list when I am in the OT? I would expect it to be available but greyed out or otherwise marked n/a.
  2. I believe that Swanson covers Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek. Why is it not an option in the interlinear especially since LN has incomplete coverage.
  3. Is volume 5 of New International Dictionary of Old Testament Theology and Exegesis a semantic domain analysis?
  4. Are there other semantic domain options in Logos besides Biblical sense, Louw-Nida, and Swanson?

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

No, these are the only semantic domain options available in Logos.

The Bible Sense Lexicon has been created to fill the need for an Old Testament equivalent to Louw-Nida: https://community.logos.com/forums/p/121507/795944.aspx#795944

It's an index of semantic fields:

Which pick list? Which resource?

The DBL Hebrew & DBL Aramaic lexicons use LN numbers as explained by the Author:

"First, the Louw Nida domain numbers (LN) for the Hebrew domains are used primarily as an organizational principle to keep track of the tens of thousands of meanings of OT lexemes. It was a matrix or “hook” upon which to hang the thousands of different meanings of the Hebrew lexemes."

But I'm not aware of an OT bible that assigns LN numbers to lemmas.

Are you referring to Swanson's morphology or Swanson's use of LN numbers in his DBL lexicons? What interlinear?

Interlinear pick lists

I most often use NRSV but it is true for any resource with RI

Use of LN numbers ... Again, I most often test with NRSV because it is used across the Protestant/ACELO divide and uses the ecumenical canon.

ACELO = Anglican-Catholic-Eastern Orthodox-Lutheran-Oriental Orthodox

I thought it was under Inline Reverse Interlinear for completeness, and would not affect the OT. But it is badly implemented as an extra (blank) row is created in the OT. The OT pick list for the reverse interlinear ribbon does not include LN.

If your are asking why LN numbers are not included in the Interlinear (along with Strong's numbers, etc.) for Hebrew and Aramaic, it is primarily because LN Semantic Domains were never designed for use outside the NT. Swanson extended their use for convenience in his lexicons, but a given meaning in the OT is covered by a broad range of sub-domains instead of a discrete sub-domain.
