"deep experience"


"I have a deep  research experience on neuroscience."  Could I use "deep" here? Thank you.

You would not use "a" here.  That means you had one experience. 


This is a perfect time to use a thesaurus, AQ.  It is my favorite tool for writing.

Occasions when a thesaurus is handy:

  • You have been overusing a word.
  • You have a word that is similar to what you want to say, but doesn't quite fit.
  • You want to write at a higher level.


Deep just isn't the right word.  It means "extending very far, usually down."  When you use the thesaurus, you find some alternatives to deep.  Of those, pick the best one.  (I'd pick broad.)  if that word still isn't quite what you are looking for, look up that word.  This will give you more alternatives.  You can zone in on the right fit this way.  I would pick extensive instead of deep

Thank you so much for giving me a tool to improve writing. I will start to use a thesaurus. (I bought one today, and I am very happy with it.) Thanks.
