With certain endings - called suffixes - the quality
of a Spanish word can be changed. Some might have heard
something like mi chiquito
and maybe wondered what might it men. The English language
does not use this type of classification of words; therefore,
it might sound a bit strange.
There is the diminutivo that makes
everything little and expresses an emotionally positive
attitude. There is the aumentativo that makes everything
bigger and mightier and there is despectivo that puts
everything in a bad shape. All have a general meaning
and in addition still a meaning that depends on the
context, as we will see.
