    Synonyms: about, about to, all but, approximately, around, bordering on, close to, close upon, essentially, in effect, just about, most, much, near to, nigh, not quite, practically, pretty near, relatively, roughly, substantially, virtually, well-nigh
    Perhaps "substantially" comes closest there.

    Synonyms: almost, approximately, close to, in general, more or less, near, nearly, roughly
    Perhaps "roughly" comes closest there. Or "close to" or "nearly" might be better.

    Synonyms: all but, almost, anyhow, approximately, around, near, nearly
    Perhaps "nearly" comes closest there.
