I'm sure the guy was trying to say "necesita," but he enunciated "necita," and I am trying to come up with an equivalent in English.

Well, I am sure too, but actually, if you pronounce this very fast and badly, the word you hear could actually be* necita*...

In any case, I did not recognize necita as necia.

I can imagine anyone ever using a diminutive of "necia", but if I had to chose, I'd go for "neciecita" too.Jajaja.

"No necita responder a preguntas o hacer declaraciones, si no lo desea".

If I had given the sentence first, the whole world would have chimed in with "necesita" and my question would not have been answered. wink

Thanks to all.

I will give a sentence, but I wanted to know first if it is possible that some people use "necita" as a diminutive of 'necia.'

Did you just randomly find the word by itself, or is there context around where you found it'

I'm not for sure, but it could.

I learned my Spanish in Central America and they used "viejito" as the diminutive for "el viejo" when I think it's actually supposed to be "viejecito".

So....it's not all that unlikely that somebody would write or say "necita" as a diminutive for "necia" even though it's not correct.
