Definition of little dulcimer or dulcette...

Hi. Just joined Little Dulcimers. I also belong to Dulcimar Making, and Scrap/Recycled wood Dulcimer Challenge, because they are both appropriate, considering I am going to begin building my first Dulcimer as soon as I've collected enough recycled materials to begin.

I would like to know the definition of what exactly is a little dulcimer or dulcette? I am guessing that it has to do with the length of the fret board. Also, does a little dulcimer have less than 18 frets?

I'm thinking my dulcimer just might fall into the little dulcimer catigory.

I'm new to the world of dulcimers, but I'm learning...
