Linearly field‐dependent broadening of NMR lines in paramagnetic materials is dealt with. Sources leading to this kind of broadening are considered and the effect is taken into account in a uniform manner by introducing a relative line shift distribution function. If this is super imposed on a fieldindependent broadening it results in the additivity of the second moments of both kinds of broad ening in agreement with what is expected for independent broadening mechanisms. The possible influence of the presence of interdependent or not linearly field‐dependent broadening effects are briefly discussed.
