Özet

In this study, Turkish and Arabic reduplications are compared with respect to semantic characteristics and phonological copying. Similarities and differences of reduplications in these languages are identified, and the reduplications are then classified in phonetic and semantic terms. A type of word collocations known as itba: [image omitted] , which were found in classical Arabic texts though they are currently obsolete, are also analyzed. The conclusions of the study are provided in the final section.
