What is the correct terminology for a person who is clinically "Small"?


Basically I mean actual "Dwarves", or do they prefer "midgets" or perhaps vertically challenged or something else? What is the PC term?

    Leprechauns have always been known as "the little people", what will they think? I don't think we should handle one problem by creating another. Thanks for the answer, I didn't know that.

    So when a small person gets on the bus and I say "awwww what a pretty little dwarf" they don't like it? But when I say "hello dwarf" and shake their hand they do?
