    In the movie, Gods and Generals, General Jackson refers to his wife as his little esposita. What is he refering to?

    Hi, phjarne.

    My guess is that he is probably using this diminutive form of esposa (wife) in an affectionate/endearing way.

    You could translate "little esposita" as something like "my dear/darling little wife".

    Best wishes.

    Hi PHJarne!! Welcome!!

    Esposa = Wife

    Esposita = affectionate term for "wife" ( literally = little wife )

    So was Gen Jackson being redundant by saying little esposita? i.e. little "little wife" Is it like saying "mi esposita pequeña" ?

    Welcome, jaktheking. And rainy7 provided a useful hint for finding the definitions of terms that bear the suffix ito or ita.
