Definition: a reduplicative construction is a set of at least two linguistic forms F and F' in a paradigmatic, i.e. non-suppletive morphological relation in which F' contains a segment or a sequence of segments, which is derived from a non-recursive repetition of (a part of) F. Reduplication exists if a specific grammatical form makes systematic use of reduplicative constructions.
