In the exercise:
“the one which ran along the stream up to her favourite clearing.”
“celui qui longeait le ruisseau jusqu'à sa petite clairière favorite.”
Is the use of ‘petite’ in order to indicate affection for the clearing, thereby emphasising that it is a ‘favourite’ place? I’m wondering how to interpret it, as the English doesn’t contain the adjective ‘little’ or ‘small’.
