Sometimes a word ending with a consonant takes the diminutive suffix 'illo' and other times it takes 'cillo'. Is there a rule for this or do we have to remember which is which?
With diminutives I'm afraid sometimes it's a bit random and it also varies a bit from region to region. One person may say "un cafecito" and another may use "un cafetito"; with others like -illo and -cillo it's the same. The aim of this lesson is to recognize those suffixes and associate them to what they convey.
