[English] Powershell: cmdlet, funclet, etc

While reading Powershell books, I wonder, why all these authors keeps forgetting about one important thing. Well, native English speakers probably feels that, while we are not.

The -let suffix is sometimes added to a word to convert it to diminutive form.

It's like owlet -- a small owl, a kid owl.

You may remember applets from Java days of 1990s. This is a small app. Also, wavelet.

Also, gimlet (but not the cocktail). Also, starlet.

Now funclets and cmdlets -- small functions and commands. The ones that didn't grew up yet, I presume...
