Standard Turkic C-Type Reduplications
Kamil Stachowski examines partial interfixed reduplications in standard Turkic languages. Generally no longer productive, this type of reduplication serves primarily to intensify adjectives and adverbs. Unlike previous texts, his book considers the phenomenon comparatively across twenty modern languages and is based on complete collections of examples. It approaches the subject from a diachronic perspective, combining etymological, historical-comparative, and quantitative methodology.
