Again, I encourage you to read the article. It offers several simple steps we may want to take when tackling a word study, making the seven following suggestions:

  1. Identify “spark” words
  2. Know the lexical range
  3. Study the immediate context
  4. Study the authorial context
  5. Study the wider context
  6. Identify defining passages
  7. Choose what fits in context
If you want to know how to conduct a helpful word study this short post is definitely worth reading.
