A matter of size or quality.

 

Why do we talk in double adjectives?

 

Why do we describe the size or goodness of things this way?:

 

tiny little

small little

good good

huge huge

yummy yummy

 

How about saying "really little" or "very little"…or "extremely good" or "surprisingly good"…or "gigantic" or "enormous" or "monstrous"…or "super delicious"?

Or is it because of some quirky rhythm?
