   Usage: Ample, Copious, Abundant, Plenteous. These
          words agree in representing a thing as large, but
          under different relations, according to the image
          which is used. Ample implies largeness, producing a
          sufficiency or fullness of supply for every want; as,
          ample stores or resources, ample provision. Copious
          carries with it the idea of flow, or of collection at
          a single point; as, a copious supply of materials.
          "Copious matter of my song." --Milton. Abundant and
          plenteous refer to largeness of quantity; as, abundant
          stores; plenteous harvests.
          [1913 Webster]
