Message 1: Diminutives that aren't

Subject: Diminutives that aren't

Does anyone know of examples of forms in any language that
are normally considered morphologically-marked diminutives,
but actually refer to entities that are big for their type? I would
be especially interested in names of animals, and in examples
from Indo-European languages, but examples of any kind will
be welcome.

Please respond directly to me, Paul S. Cohen
[pausylaol.com]. I will post a summary to the List.

Does anyone out there know if there is summer school/program 
offered in the States or Europe teaching psycholinguistics at the postgraduate 
level?
