Definition
become wider (bigger)
  • Use a more spacious ceremony to the noble lords; you have restrained yourself within the list of too cold an adieu: be more expressive to them; for they wear themselves in the cap of the time; there do muster true gait; eat, speak, and move, under the influence of the most received star; and though the devil lead the measure, such are to be followed: after them, and take a more dilated farewell.
    2.1 — Act 2 Scene 1 — Paris. A room in the King's palace (30% in)
