"Sprig" size is determined by how strong I want a flavor of that herb. And the volume of the other ingredients in said dish. So, it could be the left, it could be right, it could be the one in the middle.

Did that help?

Oxford, Cambridge and Collins pretty much agree with each other.

Wiki and a bunch of others 'branch' ( ) out into other definitions.
