    1. Similar words
    2. Scope is usually a broad term. The examples that come to mind are "there is a broad scope of different restaurants in the area", or "there is a narrow scope of opportunity to qualify for the job" Scale is usually speaking of something specific. "This picture is drawn to scale", "the scale of intensity varies". There are instances that scale will be use to describe a non-specific subject but it usually occurs in sentences such as "in the grand scale of things, the pop quiz did not matter". This is difficult to answer, though, because there are exceptions! I would say it varies depending on the context.

Primary meaning: 1.The state of the environment in which a situation exists Example: They don't lie even in the ability – perhaps more effectively but of still-limited scope – to penetrate Western borders with foreign fighters. Source: http://www.usnews.com/opinion/blogs/eric-schnurer/articles/2015-12-23/the-real-danger-of-the-islamic-state-group-is-its-virtual-power 2.An area in which something acts or operates or has power or control. It can be the width/extent/depth of a project or responsibilities. (This is usually what we see the similarity between scope and range, the feeling is a tad different though). Example: Business people like to use the word scope because it specifies the extent of their responsibilities. Once you know the scope of a project, you can decide if you're qualified and how much time it will take to do it.

It's displayed on-screen monitor. ================== Range Primary Meaning: 1.A variety of different things or activities. Example: Kitchenware companies are rolling out products ranging from grill tools and cast iron griddles to small blowtorches.

Example: They used to drive the cattle across the open range every spring. 3.A series of hills or mountains Example: On 20 November, satellites captured this image of fresh snow that had fallen along the Himalayan range in central Asia. Source: http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/dec/23/satellite-eye-on-earth-november-2015-in-pictures 4.A place for shooting (firing or driving) projectiles of various kinds Example: Any good golf club will have a range where you can practice. ( I imagine a shooting practice range) In conclusion, Scope usually has a goal, specific depth/width/range of a subject. It has usually (a) start(s) and endpoint(s). Scope is also a device used to view something very far away more easily, by magnifying it. Range refers to an area in which something operates. It focuses on the Area or the Variety of the subjects/endpoints. Hope this helps ^_^.

In this class we will discuss a range of topics such as grammar, vocabulary, literature, and the evolution of the English language itself.
