The Louw-Nida lexicon offers a lot of interesting information. I often wished it could present (part of) this data in another way. I was wondering how many people had that same desire. One of the things that I am thinking about is a circle diagram that shows in the middle the semantic domain and in the sections the different words that are part of the domain, including the number of occurences in the NT.

For instance, in a search for the word 'ἅγιος' it would show subdomain Holy/Pure (88 C) in the middle and all the different words (88.24–88.35) in the sections. In a further search it would show domain 88 (Moral and Ethical Qualities and Related Behavior) in the middle and all the subdomains (Goodness, Just/Righteous, Holy/Pure, perfect/Perfection, etc) in the sections. It would look (and function) exactly like how the circle diagrams are used in other searches, but this time based on a lexicon.What are your thoughts about this? If a lot of people like this idea, we could suggest this to Logos.

Yes, that would be a cool way to explore semantic domains! Kind of like the Visual Thesaurus.
