In this case, the word belongs to the root of nigh; to approach.1. Of little breadth; not wide or broad; having little distance from side to side; as a narrow board; a narrow street; a narrow sea; a narrow hem or border. It is only or chiefly applied to the surface of flat or level bodies.2. Of little extent; very limited; as a narrow space or compass.3. Covetous; not liberal or bountiful; as a narrow heart.4.
