Titera’s Tidbit: By and Large
A ship enjoying a fair, constant breeze such as a trade wind was said to be sailing “at large”, meaning its sails did not have to be constantly adjusted to account for fluctuations in the breeze. A ship sailing against the airflow was said to be “by the wind”. “By and large” thus means, in its original sense, “under all conditions”, which is different from its current meaning of “generally” or “for the most part”.
