Linguistic LingField(s):  Morphology
Subject Language(s):  Italian

Query:   I would like to know, if there has been further research on the topic of
Italian reduplication - ''tipo caffe caffe'' and piano piano and so on -
after the works of wierzbicka, poggi salani and rainer.
the latest literature i have is by dressler from 1994.
I am very interested in the phenomenon and I have written a little thesis
on it, the beginning of which you can find in google, tiping
''reduplikation italienisch''....
I am stuck and i dont know where to get other information on it, on
Maybe someone would like to discuss the phenomenon?
For example: do you think it would be possible to say ''interessante
interessante''? I dont think so, I asked native speakers, they said it
sounded wrong. But why? All the other, at least, many adjectives you can
duplicate this way.
I would appreciate any hint or topic to discuss.

With regards,
A student
