Definition of plusieurs vs quelques

So are they synonyms?

Hi Chris, 

I don't think you could say that 'several' (plusieurs) and 'a few' ( quelques) are synonyms in either language.

You would use plusieurs to stress a good quantity of something and quelques for a  small amount of something.

But that's semantics I suppose!

There's been ample previous discussion on that. Maybe look back a bit in the thread?
