  • I don't believe in using long words when diminutive ones will do.

  • past verb, diminutive form of 'srao'--"shat". Balasevic sings, in an anti-Milosevic satire, kud si srljo, nisi gledo: "you weren't looking where you shat". then, he inverts the meaning--ti si srljo kud si gledo: "you shat as far as you could see"

    I wonder if other languages have diminutive verbs.
