I was wondering whether we can swap "large" and "big" in the following example without sounding odd:

  • When her husband died, she came into a large inheritance.

I think they both are correct here, but I have no idea if using "big" rather than "large" is an idiomatic combin ation here.

Big inheritance is grammatically correct but is not the habitual collocation. enter image description here
