Could you explain the differences of these expressions for me?

a little/ a bit/ a little bit/ slightly

One more question;
In formal speeches and letters, should I avoid putting the expressions with "bit" in sentences?
+0
"Little" and "bit" can be considered synonyms, but the latter is informal and mainly used when one speaks. In formal speeches it should be avoided. "A little bit" is an informal way of saying "little" (emphatically?):

A: Would you like more wine?
B: Just a little bit, thanks.

"Slightly" is and adverb meaning "small in measure or degree". It's formal or neutral:

Turn up the radio slightly, please.
They are slightly different.

You can use "little" as well:

Turn up the radio a little, please. I love that song!

Now, there's a slight difference in use between "little" and "a little". "Little" implies a negative sense while "a little" conveys a positive one. Examples:

This political party actually has little power.
Hey, don't buy more bread. I have a little and it'll be enough for dinner.
