    Re: ON (A) LARGE SCALE

    No.

    There are two different expressions here.

    They have different meanings.

    They are not interchangeable.

    "At full scale"

    and

    "On a large scale"

    Re: ON (A) LARGE SCALE

    That's a loaded question. Wikipedia is as reliable as the anonymous internet people who generate its content.

    No more, or less, trustworthy than the people who write them.
