The article is a survey of Latvian derivative suffixes used for formation of diminutives. The individual suffixes are described with respect to how often are they used, their precise meaning or whether they are used for formation of another words except these with diminutive meaning. Examples and Slavic counterparts, if such can be found, are given. Furthermore the suffixes are classified according to the formants that form them. In addition to the formant -l-, which is characteristic for the Baltic languages, and the -k-, prevalent in the Slavic languages, there are formants -t- and -n-, that are even more productive than those two mentioned formerly. For some of them it's possible to find Slavic counterparts, for others it's not. At the end a synoptic table of suffixes is presented.
