    Little,old and young are often used not to give information , but as part of an adjective-noun combination.

    They are often placed next to their nouns:

    EG: your nephew is a nice little boy.


    Little+old+noun is possible :

    EG:a little old man


    Little+young  is not possible.

    Adjectives of personality/emotion can precede or follow young/old :

    EG:a young clever man.


    NB.Small is usually better than little if we want to emphasize the size.

    EG:For little meaning.

         A small amount.
