Query:   Dear Linguists:

I'm doing research on the r-suffix in Yichang (a mandarin dialect),and
need references on r-suffixation of any Chinese languages. Yichang
r-suffix cause rhyme changes, which are different from that in
Mandarin. One particular phenomenon is -r is mainly suffixed to
duplicated monosyllabic word. It seems duplication of a monosyllabic
word triggers r-suffixation. Does this phenomenon exist in any other
languages or dialects? Your help will be highly appreciated.
I'll post a summary if I get enough feedback.

Yours sincerely
Pan Ning
