>A quick question.Can anyone confirm [or not] that the
aforementioned Lexicon based on Semantic Domains is currently
available? ...
Is there anything else out there of a similar nature?
I get the impression that L&N are in a category by themselves.

Louw and Nida are quite useful for me when I want to survey material
to see what vocab is available in the NT.
Concordances are better for running thru a word's usages and
seeing collocations, but L & N fill a definite niche in the
lexicographical landscape. If you already have a concordance then
you probably need Louw and Nida.

Having said that, one needs to supplement this with a lot of common
vocab that accidently on purpose didn't make it into the GNT.
How can a little kid live without ξανθος XANQOS in the colors?
yellow is the colour of my true love's hair ...

in body parts and actions?
But you probably won't find them in BDAG either.
But you really need them day to day.
