English[edit]

Adjective[edit]

miniscule (comparative more miniscule, superlative most miniscule)

  1. Alternative spelling of minuscule

Usage notes[edit]

  • “The correct spelling is minuscule rather than miniscule. The latter is a common error, which has arisen by analogy with other words beginning with “mini”, where the meaning is similarly ‘very small’.” (The New Oxford Dictionary of English, Oxford University Press, 1998)
