Sizable or sizeable

  •  
  • Sizable means a significant amount of something. Outside of North America it is spelled sizeable. The spelling change extends to the adverb form sizably and sizeably. Be careful to use the correct form (i.e., do not use the adverb form when the adjective form is required.)

    Interestingly, the word peaked in popularity in the 1970s and since has dropped off. This is true of both spellings.
