Student or Learner
I need your help.
a little = a small amout,
too = more than ~
a little too?
for example, "It's a little too hot for comfort."
What does a little too mean in the above?
It is too hot, but only by a small amount.
It was a little too chilly to go out in only my short sleeves, but with a light sweater, it was perfect.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
