Is something that is "Abundant" more or less frequent than something that is "Common"?

@anke definitely more

I feel that abundance borders on excess

@Anke I’d say more. Abundant sounds on the way to “excessive” but without the negative connotations.

@anke more, without looking it up I'd translate it to "reichhaltig"

I wouldn't usually use abundant as a frequency term? More of a single modifier. "An abundant harvest", "a tech degree gave them abundant job opportunities"

Like I wouldn't call sparrows abundant, even though they're the most common bird I see, or the number of work shifts I have that make me tired

@Anke More; "abundant" carries a strong connotation of "more than needed."
