Q: little more than とはどういう意味ですか?
A: It means they did not do much more. They only confirmed he was alive and did not do anything else (in this case they did not give more information about his experiences).
Q: a little of this, a little of that. とはどういう意味ですか?
A: It means a variety of things that you aren't specifying. It can be used in different contexts but means basically that in all of them.

"What have you been up to?" "Oh, a little of this, a little of that." (Says you've been doing different things lately but perhaps nothing especially important or worthy of bringing up specifically. It may also be used if you don't feel like talking about what you've been doing recently or in an ironic way if you've been up to something very exciting)

"What's in this dinner you made?" "A little of this, a little of that." (A polite way of avoiding specifying the recipe for whatever reason)

A: Because "little" has negative connotations, saying "little" just emphasizes the sadness/pitiful nature of the sad person.
Q: Not really only a little とはどういう意味ですか?
A: I think there should be a comma: "not really, only a little."
Q: More than a little とはどういう意味ですか?
A: Well, in that case, it's saying that it is disappointing, but that saying "disappointing" can't describe it properly.

Ex.
"It's a little more than disappointing(it's not as simple as just being disappointed. "Disappointing" isn't strong enough to completely describe how you feel.)

If you say, "I'm a little more than thankful." It implies that you are thankful, but the word 'thankful' doesn't properly express your gratitude.

「Little」の類語とその違い

Q: little と small はどう違いますか?
A: @majix: 少し-Little
小さい-small.
Q: a little と a bit はどう違いますか?
A: To me, "a bit" sounds less than "a little"
Q: "a little" と "little" はどう違いますか?
A: okay. so it will be much easier to explain with two sentences as well as a description. so, "a little" gives the idea you're talking about the size of an object, so 'a little cat'. However, using the word 'little' gives the idea that you're talking about how much / the amount of something, like 'I have little money'
Q: a littlelittle はどう違いますか?
A: "little" is an adjective describing something that is small or short in size.

Examples: "She has little hands", "He is very little", "Look at that little house on the hill"

"a little" is used:

1. To describe a small quantity of something
Example: "He drank a little water"

2. As a qualifier for an adjective to indicate a moderate level
Example: "He is a little fat"
(This does not mean that he is little and fat. The "a little" qualifies the "fat" description to mean that he is not very fat, but instead only moderately fat.)

3. As a qualifier for a noun to indicate small in size
Example: "This is a little book about birds"
Q: a little while back と a little while ago はどう違いますか?
A: "A little while back" sounds like it happened longer ago than "a little while ago," I think. However, I also think this 'boundary' between the two would really rely on context.

E.g.
A: Woah, your tank of gas is full! I thought it would be empty; it was almost there last night.
B: Yeah, I just filled it up a little while ago.
A: When did you get this car anyway?
B: A little while back. I bought it in July as a birthday present to myself.

This nuance might vary from person to person, though.
