  Enormous \E*nor"mous\, a. [L. enormis enormous, out of rule; e
     out + norma rule: cf. F. ['e]norme. See Normal.]

        proportion; inordinate; abnormal. "Enormous bliss."

        enormous size." --Jenyns.

     2. Exceedingly wicked; outrageous; atrocious; monstrous; as,

              That detestable profession of a life so enormous.
                                                    --Bale.
  
     Syn: Huge; vast; immoderate; immense; excessive; prodigious;
          monstrous.
  
     Usage: -- Enormous, Immense, Excessive. We speak of a
            thing as enormous when it overpasses its ordinary law
            of existence or far exceeds its proper average or
            standard, and becomes -- so to speak -- abnormal in
            its magnitude, degree, etc.; as, a man of enormous
            strength; a deed of enormous wickedness. Immense
            expresses somewhat indefinitely an immeasurable
            quantity or extent. Excessive is applied to what is
            beyond a just measure or amount, and is always used in
            an evil; as, enormous size; an enormous crime; an
            immense expenditure; the expanse of ocean is immense.
            "Excessive levity and indulgence are ultimately
            excessive rigor." --V. Knox. "Complaisance becomes
            servitude when it is excessive." --La Rochefoucauld
            (Trans).
            [1913 Webster]
