    Smile Using synonyms

    I'd like to ask about the difference and correctness of usage of synonyms "light" and "bright" in the following phrases: light tunnel; bright tunnel. Is there any difference?
    Thank You beforehand,
    Alexandera.

    Welcome to the forums.

    Since tunnels are generally dark, both seem unlikely.

    Yes, a light tunnel is a bright tunnel, and vice versa.
