    little

    Is it right to say "he's a little rich", can I use little/a little plus an adjective?
    Thanks

    Usually you would say - he is a little bit rich = if you were going to comment on his wealth like that.

    If you are meaning that he as a person is extravagant in character and behaviour, you can say "He's a little rich" - it is a colloquial use.

    If you want to talk about his financial status, it is not a suitable adjective to describe a level of wealth. More usual collocations would be: fairly rich; quite rich; relatively rich.
