So you know what I don’t get? Why people repeat words. (x)

Grammar time: it’s called “contrastive reduplication,” and it’s a form of intensification that is relatively common. Finnish does a very similar thing, and others use near-reduplication (rhyme-based) to intensify, like Hungarian (pici ‘tiny’, ici-pici ‘very tiny’).

Even the typologically-distant group of Bantu languages utilize reduplication in a strikingly similar fashion with nouns: Kinande oku-gulu ‘leg’, oku-gulu-gulu ‘a REAL leg’ (Downing 2001, includes more with verbal reduplication as well).

I suppose the difficult aspect of English reduplication is not through this particular type, but the fact that it utilizes many other types of reduplication: baby talk (choo-choo, no-no), rhyming (teeny-weeny, super-duper), and the ever-famous “shm” reduplication: fancy-schmancy (a way of denying the claim that something is fancy).

No but seriously, we all know what that means.

If he ‘likes’ you, then he thinks you’re a nice person, maybe a friend. He doesn’t think you’re a dick. If he ‘likes likes’ you, then that’s romantic attraction shit.

'Spicy' can be like there are a lot of spices in this dish, like tarragon and cinnamon and shit. 'Spicy Spicy' implies there is HEAT, or, if heat was already implied in the first version, this heat will BURN YOUR FUCKING MOUTH

And then there’s ‘Fancy’ - This can mean anything from ‘wear something not stained or full of holes, but otherwise whatever’ up to ‘professional attire’ but ‘Fancy Fancy’ is like, shit girl, ettiquite says makeup and REALLY NICE clothing is only suitable. Tux and dress. Heels. This is Fancy Fancy bullshit, and if you underdress, you’ll regret it later.

"Well now that a huge percentage of the audience of comic book movies are girls, clearly girls like comic book movies exactly the way they are and we don’t have to change anything"

Intro Porn (3/?) ► CBS’ Elementary

“It has its costs - learning to see the puzzle in everything. They’re everywhere. Once you start looking, it’s impossible to stop. It just so happens that people, and all the deceits and delusions that inform everything they do, tend to be the most fascinating puzzles of all. Of course, they don’t always appreciate being seen as such.”
