    Default How small are they?

    In my dictionary,
    both the definitions of "diminutive" and "midget" are "very small".
    But how small are they anyway?
    Smaller than my palm?
    So small that I can't see?
    Or just smaller than a certain object's usual size?
    Are they equally small?
    Can they be used to describe pepole, animals as well as other objects?

    Default Re: How small are they?

    very small for a normal item of that type

    for instance, a midget aircraft carrier might be 100 yards/meters long

    they are adjectives that can be used on anything although they tend to have special meanings when applied to people. If in doubt, just use 'tiny'
