1. Apparently I need to buy the Original Languages library as well since
the LSJ is an add-on.
This is not absolutely necessary, but you would thus get the NA-27,
LXX and also the
_Biblia_Hebraica_Stuttgartensis_. You would also get Hebrew and
Greek lexica (though
not BDAG which is a separate item).
2. Is it easy to set up and use for someone with basic computer skills?
It's a breeze. The hardest part is entering the authorization code
Just pay attention to what is written and duplicate it. As to ease
of use -- also
quite simple. If you have tagged texts, just click on the word and
up pops the
entry in LSJ. If you don't have tagged texts, there are two methods
you can use.
a. Toggle the contents pane using either the icon or <alt-c, v>
and locate the word
in the contents panel. Clicking on that brings up the entry.
b. Using either the Windows built-in language facility (to set up
use Control Panel --
keyboard -- language) or a unicode word processor enter the
word in the address
3. Is the LSJ available in any other less expensive software?
The Logos edition is the only electronic edition of LSJ of which I
am aware (I badgered Bob
Pritchett, the president of Logos, into publishing it when it was
questionable whether there
was sufficient support to justify it)
