Hi, I am from Serbia, and I wonder if you can help me. Actually, I am writing a research paper from morphology about litotes. The problem is that I do not know the examples of litotes in English language in terms of morphology. Actually, I know one example- ASTOUND( earlier it used to mean TO STRIKE WITH THUNDER). I would kindly ask you to provide more examples, if you are willing to. Thank you, Emilija
I don't see the connection between litotes and morphology.
Thank you very much!

("Not inconsiderable" was allegedly a particular favourite of former British Prime Minister John Major's; he was often mocked for it.)
