The basic tools like Strong's tell us of words that are derived from combining two (or more) words to create a new word, but it does not really go very deep into explaining the origin and the full meaning of those individual subwords.

Looking to dive deeper into these studies I wanted to ask you what books would you recommend to do a deeper word study in Logos 7.  

Thank you

Beyond Lexicons such as the BDAG/HALOT Bundle, I find dictionaries to be quite useful for going deeper in a word study. The New International Dictionary of Theology and Exegesis: Old and New Testament (10 vols.) and Eerdmans Theological Dictionary Bundle (TDOT/TDNT) (25 vols.) have proven their worth to me in this area.

Also, don’t forget to utilize the Bible Word Study where all of this information is pulled together in one location for you.

Richard, would you please provide a specific example of one or two of these words. A NT and OT example would be very much appreciated.

Thanks, KS4J!

Am I right that one method of studying these words is to look at the resources suggested in Parallel Resouces?

Yes, when a resource is open that has lemma headword (or Strong's #), can click "+" for new tab that has Parallel Resources with that headword. After choosing resource in new tab, can drag that tab as desired:

Bible Word Study has Lemma section, which is another method of studying.

For words like these that are derived morphologically (like Greek words with a prepositional prefix), you may find the Root section of Bible Word Study helpful to find more information about them. Here's an example for ἀναβαίνω:
