The Endearing Degree of the adjective indicates that the speaker is indicating the quality expressed by that adjective with a feeling of fondness, or intensification. In other words, the endearing degree of the adjective is entirely related to the speaker’s feeling. e.g.

A lovely little colourful Hoten carpet, with a portrait of a tiger printed on it, had been hung on the wall. (Kéyum Turdi)

The Endearing Degree of the adjective is one of the most unproductive among the degree forms of the adjective and only a few adjectives go into this form.
