    smallish fee

    "Would you be willing to sell this for a smallish fee?"> What does "smallish fee" mean? How much ($ range) is smallish fee?

    I searched for the word smallish fee and it seems like it is a self invented word that is not standard English.

    Re: smallish fee

    It doesn't refer a specific range of prices. A small fee would be subjective. It depends what you're paying for. "Smallish" is used a lot as are many other adjectives followed by "ish".

    It's not a "self-invented" word! That would mean that the word invented itself. That's not possible.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
