Never make these mistakes in Chinese 74

         Jīntiān xiǎo xiàyǔ.
False: 今天小下雨
          Jīntiān xià xiáoyǔ.
True: 今天下小雨

The main function of adjective 小 is to be an attributive. 小 which is used wrongly here as an adverbial adjunct should be shifted backwards after the predicate verb 下. 小雨 means "a light rain".
