It would be useful to have as many of these resources as possible pulled together into an anthology with Logos - perhaps even attached to the dataset documentation. As many are Logos blogs there shouldn't be a significant licensing problem:

Posts on the Logos blog–

• “Specialize Your Searches with the Bible Sense Lexicon” (Jeremy Thompson)
• “Find the Right Meaning with the Bible Sense Lexicon” (Jeremy Thompson)
• “Logos 5: Locate Biblical Occurrences of a Sense” (Morris Proctor)
• “How to Do Smarter Word Studies” (David Witthoff)
• “Logos 5: Sense in Word by Word” (Morris Proctor)

Sense of the Day posts—These posts include a significant number of worked examples that show how the Bible Sense Lexicon can be useful for exegesis.
Advanced Resources:

• “Introduction to WordNet: An Online Lexical Database” (George Miller, et al) This is a free and fairly substantial introduction to WordNet.
• WordNet: An Electronic Lexical Database (ed. Christiane Fellbaum) This is the standard book length introduction to WordNet, which includes background information, specific discussions related to various parts of speech, and example applications of the database for English
• “The Bible Sense Lexicon: WordNet Theory Adapted for Biblical Languages” (Jeremy Thompson) This paper was presented at the annual meeting of the Society of Biblical Literature in 2013. It provides a basic overview of the adaptation of WordNet for the purposes of the Bible Sense Lexicon.
• “Metaphor Identification and Practical Lexicography of the Hebrew Bible” (Jeremy Thompson) This paper was presented at the annual meeting of the Society of Biblical Literature in 2013. It provides a specific use case for the Bible Sense Lexicon as a means for analyzing metaphors.
