    Re: bit

    I don't sense any difference at all.

    I'm a little hungry. I'm a bit hungry.
    The outcome was a little disappointing. The outcome was a bit disappointing.
    You look a little sad. You look a bit sad.
    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.

    Everyone needs a little bit of encouragement.

    I am not a teacher.

    "Bit" sounds a bit British to me. Just a bit.
