  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Adjective Phrase 4. The adjective phrase

  • today is itty-bitty or itsy-bitsy. You know of course you would probably only

  • use one of each one. But both of them have almost exactly the same meaning.

  • Both of them are also used in a way to mean something is you know,

  • to show that it's cute or small. We use a lot with children or we're trying to be

  • cute. Okay. So let's take a look at the note here. Itsy-bitsy or itty bitty both

  • mean very small or tiny. So if we say something is itsy-bitsy or itty bitty

  • means it's really really small it's really really tiny. Okay. Let's look at

  • some examples here. Example number one. He nearly ate the whole cake. He only left

  • me an itty-bitty piece. Yeah. For you really try to emphasize he left you

  • practically nothing. Just little tiny just an itty bitty piece

  • hardly anything. Okay. Number two just add an itty bitty amount of cinnamon. Yeah.

  • Sometimes when you're giving somebody you know directions for a recipe or

  • something like this that could be one of the steps in the recipe. You know just

  • Number three. There used to be an old song called Itsy-bitsy Teeny-weeny

  • Yellow Polka-dot Bikini. Yeah it was another one of those songs that was

  • meant to be very funny. How did it go ? It went something like this. Yeah she wore

  • an itsy-bitsy, teeny-weeny, yellow polka-dot bikini. That she wore for the

  • first time today. Something like that. Then it goes on and it's kind of a funny

  • song. That she was almost a little too embarrassed to go out because she was
