How small should the base-emitter voltage changes of the transistor be so that the relationship between the base-emitter voltage changes and the collector current changes can be considered linear?

For a BJT, the voltage scale is the thermal voltage, about 26 mV at room temperature. The base voltage change must be substantially smaller than that to approach linearity.
