A new way of regarding dictionaries appeared in the second half of the 20th century. Their metamorphosis, from reference works to cultural artefacts that could be close read, ought to be considered one of the most remarkable revolutions in lexicographical studies. New Testament Greek philologists began to explore how we grasp what a biblical word means after looking it up in a lexicon but, most importantly, how dictionaries convey that information and make us believe we now know the meaning of a particular lexical item. This thesis dissertation aims to contribute to the emerging academic branch of metalexicography or comparative lexicography by developing an analitical method expressly tailored to the peculiarities of Biblical Hebrew as a corpus language. It simultaneously addresses a so-far neglected semantic field, namely “sex”, through the examination of its best-attested verbs.
