When I am writing an article, from time to time, I am not sure which adjective to use when describing that something is significant (or insignificant).
- My current problem is: significant advance in satellite communication. Is there any commonly used adjective for that? (large advance, vast advance, big advance,..)
Also there was a similar question: Large, huge or big communities?
In general, are there rules regarding this matter? Or the only thing what one can do is to get used to the right combination and search on web-pages like Google Ngram Viewer or Corpus of historical American English ?
