Word Wednesday 7: Lilliputian


Lilliputian can be an adjective or a noun. In adjective form, it describes something that is extremely small. You could call an infant lilliputian, for instance, or a single grain of sand. It can also describe something that is very trivial.

In noun form, it means an inhabitant of Lilliput, but someone who is small in stature can also be called a lilliputian. I'm guessing people from Lilliput tend to be short :)

Bonus point: Lilliput is where the name of the Pokemon Lillipup came from!
Isn't he cute?

  1. Yes, he is cute! I haven't seen that one before. He must be on HeartGold (which I haven't started yet) or Black/White (which I don't own yet).

  2. Yup, he's a new Pokemon in Black/White. Actually very common.
