Usage notes

Kis can only stand before a noun but never on its own. If it were to stand on its own (as a predicate, or a short reference to a noun phrase with this quality), kicsi must be used instead. (Note that the same syntactic difference exists between két and kettő in Hungarian, both of which mean 'two'.) Their distribution is comparable to that of "sick" and "ill" in English: "they are ill" (cf. kettő, kicsi, when used on their own) vs. "sick people" (cf. két, kis, i.e. used before a noun).
