    far-flung

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?

    A dead mouse here makes an insect imbalance there, a population disproportion later, a bad harvest further on, a depression, mass starvation , and finally, a change in social temperament in far-flung countries.

    far flung = widely distributed; wide-ranging; (spacious - wrong)

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V

    Re: far-flung

    You are correct about the first two. Spacious means having much space; roomy.
