I thought Dwarves and Midgets(little people?) were 2 different things. Like a dwarf is a shorter version of a midget. Right?
As I understand it, a midget is someone who is correctly proportioned, just in miniature, i.e. Emmanuel Lewis. Dwarfs are more common, Peter Dinklage, etc. They have normal sized torsos with shorter legs and arms. I guess collectively, "little people".
