Word of the day

Reduplication – an often grammatically functional repetition of a radical element or a part of it occurring usually at the beginning of a word and often accompanied by change of the radical vowel; a morphological process in which the root or stem of a word (or part of it) or even the whole word is repeated exactly or with a slight change;  a word-formation process in which meaning is expressed by repeating all or part of a word (eg crisscross, dillydally; flimflam).
