Sometimes the answer is small and other times the answer is short. How do we know which one is correct?
Both are correct. Depends on the context.
Short is generally used in context of height while small is nearly applied in almost any context (excet height)
Chote/chota can mean both small or short depending on context.
We are talking of one person jere, tum, are we not? So why is chote used which is plural
तुम always conjugates that way even if we are talking of a single person. The same is true for आप.
Also used when telling a child she/he is too young for whatever the context.
This really threw me at first since the "tum" is pronounced like "tum-uh" in the fast version. (I try to listen only once to the fast version then spell it out in head first.) Am I crazy? Is tum-uh a thing?
