So, Peter,

How can this lack of living informants be overcome? Maybe semanticists who
have worked
on the OT corpus and whose mother tongue is modern Hebrew could be involved
in this
project at some point. Establishing a semantic domain  is already quite a
subjective
endeavour, especially when done by non-native speakers.

  Yes, for biblical Hebrew.

  They didn't react at all, because the last of them died more than 2000
  years ago. :-)
