Hi, just a quick one:

Would you use the expression 'a "wide" stomach'? I suspect that it means a large/bulging/protruding stomach. Am I right?

Thanks, as always.

    I would not use wide in this sense. Wide means big/large from side to side.

    We had to cross a wide avenue to get to our destination.
    He is quite tall and has wide shoulders.
