Usage notes

The numeral két (two) and the adjective kis (small, little) can only stand adjectively, before a noun (e.g. két alma (two apples) and kis alma (a small apple)). If they were to occur on their own (possibly also inflected), predicatively, or in reference to a whole noun phrase, the terms kettő (two) and kicsi (small) must be used instead: Csak kettő van (There are only two), Csak kicsi van (There is a small one only.) The same applies to compound numerals like tizenkét and tizenkettő (twelve). In terms of distribution, két and kis are like English sick (sick people ~ két/kis alma) while kettő and kicsi resemble ill (they are ill ~ csak kettő/kicsi van). The longer forms are definitely broader in use as they may also occur adjectively, whether for emphasis or as a form of colloquialism. As a rule of thumb, the short variants (két, kis) never stand on their own.
