23.1.2 Nouns with ending -ito


  Examples for nouns
noun English stem diminutivo meaning
la casa house cas- la casita little house
el libro book libr- el librito little book, brochure
los libros books libro- los libritos little books, brochures
la caja box caj- la cajita little box
la gata cat gat- la gatita little cat
el regalo gift regal- el regalito little gift
la cuchara spoon cuchar- cucharita tea spoon

One thing we can see very clearly: even when changed with the diminutivo-ending the noun does not loose its gender or the number. The endings have to be adjusted accordingly.
