    corrections of sentence

    Could you please go through the sentence and help me as stated below?

    News of Lynda's passing permeated the wide spectrum of believers as evidenced by the grief displayed on their faces, more so at her wake.

    1. Is 'spectrum' correctly used? The writer is trying to say the many believers in Nichiren Shoshu Buddhism? I believe the word is wrong, but I cannot think of the correct word. Could you please rephrase the sentence for me if it is necessary to do so?

    2. Is 'more so at her wake' correctly used?

    Many thanks.

    Re: corrections of sentence

    I don't see anything wrong with the two words being used.

    1. spectrum mean the complete range of believers

    2. more so at her wake - Wake is the time of mourning and outpouring of grief before/after a funeral

    not a teacher
