"Kinda" and "little", what are the different ways to use that?
"Kinda/kind of" and "a little" are very similar in meaning and are all used to casually express the meaning of "rather" or "to an extent." There isn't a huge difference in nuance between the two, but "kind of/kinda" is a little more casual in feeling. Ex: It's kinda cloudy today. Ex: Skydiving is kind of like learning to ride a bike. You have to learn to let go. Ex: I feel a little tired. I probably slept too late last night. Ex: This wine is a little sour. Has it gone bad?
