Just after reading an unanswered (though pretty interesting) question in French Language, I thought that the reason it didn't get answers was that it actually asked several questions at once.
Then I formulated automatically this reflection in my head:
It's too broad
But immediately after I wondered if I shouldn't rather say:
It's too wide
Hence my question: as dictionaries seem to globally propose the same sense for both words, are there some contexts where one should be preferred to the other?
Time to write the above, I thought I identified the begin of a difference: "wide" would apply to somewthing concrete (such as a place, an object, a point of view... anything measurable), while "broad" woud rather be used for more abstract things (for example a domain of knowledge).
Note: I could find a related question, but it (and its answer too) is strictly focused on a specific context.
My own question is more [broad | wide] :)
