- a broad range of vs a wide range 2 answers
Broad and wide are near synonyms but only near, since "a broad smile" is a more common collocation than "a wide smile", and you can say "eyes wide open" but not "eyes broad open".
Breadth and width seem to be closer synonyms since both are defined in Collins Dictionary Online as:
the linear extent or measurement of something from side to side
Why are the adjectives/adverbs broad and wide not as interchangeable as the nouns breadth and width seem to be?
