mundialito in a translation exercise

"mundialito" in Gran Premio de Macau, had no possible hints. This was a guess: small world.

October 6, 2012



"Mundial" is the adjective form of "world." It's often used to mean "world championship," like a shortened version of "campeonato mundial."

The "-ito" suffix is diminutive, but doesn't always mean "small." It is often used to show affection, or to be cute, or a ton of other things. It's really hard to say what they mean without some context,


I posted identical statement in Feedback at the point of discovery.


Thank you, friends, for your comments. I ended up looking in a real paper dictionary and did find mundial. I made the assumption about -ito.
