    little

    Is it okay to say " a little bit" or is it redundancy?
    How about "little more time"?

    Thanks for the explanation!!!

    Re: little

    They're both fine. I don't think it is redundant to say 'little bit'; it just adds emphasis.

    Re: little

    Somebody told me so and it got me confused that I don't quite use it. Thanks a lot!
