"Abracadabra" to "Zoom-Zoom": Possibly the WORLD's LARGEST COMPENDIUM of REDUPLICATIONS
WORDPLAY post #28 COMPENDIUM TO ACCOMPANY THE DIDACTIC POEM : (see post #26) EDITOR: Giorgio Coniglio, July 2015, updated March 2017.
SONG LINK: This list of reduplications, which originally excluded the examples mentioned in "The Lesson", was published in 2015 as song-lyrics subbed into the context of "The Elements" by Tom Lehr. You can find the songs, with accompanying ukulele chords on our sister-blog "Giorgio's Ukable Parodies" as .... "The Reduplications: Singable Lexicon A to K", and "The Reduplications: Singable Lexicon L to Z". In its present form, the compendium has over 250 entries.
