If I could change anything, I would do two things. First, I would have a brief explanation in the introduction showing how the entries in the dictionary work. Things are very heavily abbreviated and honestly, I still don't understand some of what I'm looking at. Thankfully that is all in regular print ... the bold print lets me find the things that are important for my purposes very quickly. The second thing is the Greek font used for the entries. I hate the phi and rho! Blech! Within the definitions themselves, the font is much more traditional and far more attractive.
Finally, this is a lexicon. I highly recommend getting NIDNTTE (http://smile.amazon.com/International-Dictionary-Testament-Theology-Exegesis/dp/0310276195/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1436294212&sr=8-1&keywords=NIDNTTE) as an accompaniment. That will explain the theological significance attached to the words in question.
This is an expensive volume, but a wonderful one, and it is right at the top of the food chain when it comes to Greek study aids, as far as I am concerned. BDAG has the potential to add exceptional depth and clarity to one's understanding of the Koine, and what more could one ask for?
I have used the lexicon several times since I received it, and I'm pleased with it's organization and the clear printing. The pages are very light in color, making it easier to read the text.
I would purchase from this supplier again.
