Nice word indeed: but...what does it mean?
here, seem to be a kind of cat!
surely that's just one of the possible meaning..
Grazie, ma mi era sfuggito, sul mio dizionario di slang c'era (scusatemi! )
Significa persona insignificante - dal nome dei nanetti che aiutano il Mago di Oz nella storia omonima.
yes, you are all correct. We also use that word to describe children, a pet phrase.
I only know it's a hilarious cardgame
Not insignificant! A munchkin is a person who is notably small and often endearing. That's why it is positively used as a nickname for people and pets.
Thank you, lsp! But, contrary to what you told us, munchkin is derogatory, here!
how is it derogatory??
Yes, but I only meant to say "not always negative by definition."
Separate names with a comma.
