Ch.20: Reduplication by Suzanne Urbanczyk


"Reduplication refers to a word formation process that repeats all or part of a word or phrase. The range of what can be copied, how reduplication interacts with other morphemes and phonological processes, and the sorts of meanings that can be expressed via reduplication all factor into making the study of reduplication a vast and rich area of linguistic investigation. This chapter provides an overview of the range of patterns found and introduces current approaches to analyzing the phonological aspects of reduplication, such as issues of segmental identity and prosody."
