Hello everyone,

Would you like a little cup of coffee?

Can this sentence mean "Do you want a small cup which contains coffee?" Here "little" means the same as in " a little girl".

Thanks in advance.

    What does "little girl" mean? :p

    I think it depends on the context. Some people like using diminutives and making everything sound really small. They'll ask you if you'd like a drop of tea, a little bite of chocolate cake and so on.
