making words little

Postby googl » Fri Oct 08, 2004 12:22 pm

Dear Alan,

mum -> mummy
dad -> daddy
lass -> lassie
gradmother -> grandma
gradfather -> grandpa

I read that there aren't any way to form any word 'little' but are there any others aside from these mentioned above?

I'm sorry, but word-formation patterns are too many and varied to permit a simple answer to this question.
