I'm working on a doctorate and would like to mention the Lexham Figurative Language of the New Testament Dataset and then quote from the introduction to the dataset which is found in the dataset glossary.

I'm planning on citing just the Dataset in the bibliography, as if it were an edited book, and then when I quote from the glossary to just say that it comes from the accompanying glossary, but without including the glossary explicitly in the bibliography. The format in the bibliography would look like this:

Westbury, J.R. – Thompson, J. – Lyle, K.A. – Parks, J. (eds.), The Lexham Figurative Language of the New Testament Dataset (Bellingham, WA 2016).

Does that sound correct, or is there some other convention for citing these datasets which is more common?

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

Are you talking about https://ref.ly/logosres/lxfiglanggloss?art=title? Because its title is The Lexham Figurative Language of the Bible Glossary and it contains an Introduction. It would seem to me that the dataset and the glossary are two different things that should be cited as different things.

Please use descriptive thread titles to attract helpful posts & not waste others' time. Thanks!

Thanks! I'm applying cognitive linguistics (and in particular Conceptual Metaphor Theory and Conceptual Blending Theory) to the study of the metaphors of the church (temple, woman, city...) in Revelation. It's quite an interesting topic, I find!

I'm not interested in referencing the Glossary, though, just the Dataset. The Dataset then has an accompanying introduction and glossary (and I mention that), but what is really of interest is the Dataset.
