I would like to compile a list of adjectives that can be used with the word "need", as in
In Country X there is [adjective] need of new methods to involve adults in learning activities
and the adjective expressing size (big or small and everything in-between).
Some adjectives that seem to be in use
Others would probably sound odd: big, huge, large, vast, tremendous, enormous... at least as long as I do not want to do creative writing but rather write a standard text in an educated institutional context (here: a grant application for an international cooperation in the EU).
This is about good style, including precision and variation of expression.
