    Enlarged or broadened negotiations

    Hi. We say an "enlarged" or a "broadened" session." Can we use the same adjectives with "negotiations"?

    Re: Enlarged or broadened negotiations

    If I got you intention right, I would say "extended negotiations".
    Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.

    Re: Enlarged or broadened negotiations

    "Broad negotiations" cover a wide variety of topics.
    Is that what you mean?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: Enlarged or broadened negotiations

    If so, is it natural to say "wide-ranging negotiations"?

    Re: Enlarged or broadened negotiations

    By saying "broadened" I mean not the range of topics, but the number of people participating in a given negotiaton.

    Re: Enlarged or broadened negotiations

    I would not understand that meaning from your sentence.
    We brought more people to the negotiating table. (Even if the table is figurative.)

    Re: Enlarged or broadened negotiations

    Otherwise, can I use extended-format negotiations or narrow-format negotiations in that sense?

    Re: Enlarged or broadened negotiations

    Would you know what "well-participated negotiations" means?

    Re: Enlarged or broadened negotiations

    Of course, no. However, would you know what an "enlarged session" means? The dictionary says that it is a session with an increased number of participants.
