In order to intensify the meaning of a word English uses the word "very", "a lot of" or simply uses a new word for it. Similar, in Kurdish a word can be intensified with the word "zor" (=very), however, in some cases the word itself can be repeated twice to intensify its meaning.
Here are some examples of this repetition
|dûr||far||dûr dûr||very far|
|zor||very, a lot, much||zor zor||even more, exceedingly|
|koka||cough||kok-a-kok||a lot of coughing|
|bola||loud complaining||bol-a-bol||a lot of loud complaining|
|qîzh||scream||qîzh-a-qîzh||a lot of screaming|
|shirr||squeak, squeal, scream||shirr-a-shirr||a lot of squeaking|
|taqa||banging, thud||taq-a-taq||a lot of banging, noise|
|tapa||stomp (once)||tap-a-tap||a lot of stomping|
So, if this word repetition looks familiar to your mother tongue then please let me know and comment.
