   4. Large; bulky; corpulent.
      [1913 Webster]

   Syn: Stout, Corpulent, Portly.

   Usage: Corpulent has reference simply to a superabundance or
          excess of flesh. Portly implies a kind of stoutness or
          corpulence which gives a dignified or imposing
          appearance. Stout, in our early writers (as in the
          English Bible), was used chiefly or wholly in the
          sense of strong or bold; as, a stout champion; a stout
          heart; a stout resistance, etc. At a later period it
          was used for thickset or bulky, and more recently,
          especially in England, the idea has been carried still
          further, so that Taylor says in his Synonyms: "The
          stout man has the proportions of an ox; he is
          corpulent, fat, and fleshy in relation to his size."
          In America, stout is still commonly used in the
          original sense of strong as, a stout boy; a stout
          pole.
          [1913 Webster]
