Investigation of the outcomes of Greek diminutive nouns in the Gothic New Testament reveals a variety of translation strategies. The Gothic Version does not automatically carry over a word’s diminutive character. Most cases of Greek diminutives translated with Gothic diminutives are part of a Gothic pattern, centred on children. In other cases, the usual range of Gothic translation decisions are found, ranging from subtle discriminations to elisions of distinction.
