What is the equivalent to "Grandecito" in English? At first it seems redundant because in English you cannot say, "big-small" or "small-big". I have heard, "its biggie". I also have heard, "biggish", but the latter seems to be tied to more of a "kind of big" but not "big".
I'm not sure if I fully understand "Grandecito," or if there is a single word.
But there are two techniques which I think come close:
.1. With people, Hyperbole:
We say to a small boy "You're a great big boy now; you must ..." (be careful with glasses/ be nice to your sister/ watch where you put your feet/ etc)
.2. With objects it is more usual to use a child's word for big:
"That's a ginormous sandwich you've got there; can you eat all that?" "He gave her a ring with a humungous shiny stone." "He was running for dear life from a flipping great spider."
