There is at least one article on the problems with some lexical
definitions in LSJ, especially with respect to the LXX, in the Danker

You should be able to get access to it at any good library. My copy is
at home, or I would be able to give you the chapter(s). I believe it is
the one by John Lee, but I might be remembering incorrectly.
