Before entering the theory-oriented part of the book, Carl Rubino introduces the reader to the variety of forms and functions that reduplication can take in the languages of the globe.
However, to my mind, the trickiest question is how we can distinguish between repetition and total reduplication, since partial reduplication is relatively straightforward and easily discernible in languages with morphology.
Jason Haugen, in his article about Uto-Aztecan reduplication, analyzes grammaticalized reduplicative operations in order to reconstruct the productive reduplication mechanisms of the Proto-language of the Uto-Aztecan family.
Repetition of a part of a root (t of ktb) agrees with the view of reduplication as a morphological process in which either the whole base or part of the base is copied.
In literature on Semitic languages, the terms reduplication and gemination have at times been employed interchangeably.
Reduplication is attested in all branches of the Afroasiatic language family, including Chadic, Cushitic, Egyptian, and Semitic.
This study focuses primarily on reduplication that is found in nominal derivation, as in (lc).
Reduplication in nominal derivation is to be distinguished from another type of reduplication that has been termed phonological reduplication, or better compensatory reduplication, in linguistic literature.
These two methods are formally distinct and produce very different types of reduplication.
Morphological doubling is a morphologically driven, morphologically mandated doubling that is at work in cases like total reduplication in Dyirbal, illustrated in (1).
The properties distinguishing the two types of reduplication are contrasted in Table 1.
Section 5 discusses the potential for ambiguity in the analysis of CV reduplication, and Sections 6 and 7 discuss how the Dual Theory relates to Generalized Template Theory (GTT) and to Base-Reduplicant Correspondence Theory (BRCT), respectively.
