When do you use suuri vs. iso?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Gregorius877608

They are usually synonyms so both would work here. But "iso" refers always to physical size, while "suuri" can be used also more figuratively (a great man, a great act etc)

I reckon they are pretty much interchangeable, at least most of the time.

Suuri mies - a great man Iso mies - a big man
