Examples from texts

Duncan had forgotten this way Fraser had, of catching hold of a subject and niggling away at it, just for the pleasure of thinking it through.

What is most striking is the discovery of niggling little rules, outlined in CIA manuals and co-opted by the government's legal executives.
Что больше всего поражает – это раскрытие пустячных мелких правил, изложенных в инструкциях ЦРУ и допущенных судебными исполнителями правительства.
