    a big/large suitcase

    What a big/large suitcase you're carrying! Let me help you.

    Is there any difference between a big suitcase and a large suitcase in this context? (I mean maybe big implies that it's heavier and large implies that it is just big size, not necessarily heavy?)
    Or are the two words complete synonyms in this context?
    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)

    Re: a big/large suitcase

    For me, they have the same meaning.
