: : Could someone help me with the phrase "You wolfette
: : !".I couldn't find the word "wolfette" in my dictionary. I picke this phrase up in a drama, where a wife is cursing to a young girl for stealing her husband.
: : Thank you in advance.
: This isn't a standard word. The wife in the story is making it up. "-ette" is a diminutive or feminine suffix. The woman means "You little wolf!"
Or, since wolves are canids, "You little bitch!" SS
