Redoublement lexical, procede intensif (Lexical Doubling, Intensive Method).
George, Kenneth E. M.
Francais dans le Monde, n180 p63-65 Oct 1983
An often-neglected aspect of daily language is syllable doubling or repetition, as in infant language ("nounou"), onomatopoeia ("ronron"), interjections or responses ("oui oui"), names ("Mimi"), or military slang ("coco" for "commandant"). The mechanisms and semantic functions of this phenomenon are outlined, drawing on examples from French novels. (MSE)
