Because of that statement, I just purchased Danker's Concise Lexicon. I bought a kindle version from Amazon. Logos does not offer a version. And Logos does not support Kindle books, so I cannot use my Kindle DCL in my Logos app -- what a pity... I've got a number of books in Kindle format I would like to use in my Logos software. I'm also thinking that I should recommend to my beginning and intermediate students that this is the lexicon for them to purchase. "Throw out Barclay Newman's UBS lexicon, and get a lexicon that will teach you."Subsequent to John Lee's study of New Testament lexicography, Frederick Danker produced The concise Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament.In response to critiques of previous methodology, Danker's concise lexicon redressed some of the problems that afflict BDAG. The most significant advance in this regard is the inclusion of extended definitions for many lexical entries -- alongside glosses. This volume is useful for students, being less encumbered by detail that they rarely need -- and being much less expensive -- but it cannot replace BDAG for scholars and many pastors, who will require a more fulsome treatment of lexemes
But the point I'm trying to make is that Emiliano Caruso has just produced one of the first Koine-Koine lexicons, titled Vocabolario Monolingue di Greco Antico / Monolingual Dictionary of Ancient Greek. ISBN 978-88-909711-0-5. http://www.monogreek.com. Italy, 2014. This is a very basic lexicon, and has much to be improved upon. I think the best Caruso would do to improve is to try to use Danker's Concise lexicon as a model, and then create definitions, not glosses.
So BDAG is the best -- but in some cases DCL is better? What do you all think about this?
