Why Do We Double-Shouble Words For Emphasis?


Vishal Kapoor
Too Extrovert. Writing is not really my thing but doing fine for now ;)

Have you ever noticed how grown-ups modify certain words for emphasis or for making them sound rhyming.

If not, then we are sure after you finish reading this listicle, you would be nodding your head in disbelief that you answered in the negative in the first place. For instance haven’t you heard your friend say party warty ho jaaye aaj phir? LOL!

Why do we modify and repeat the same word? Well, Khurki thinks that it’s the feel that lets us make different words out of words…

Here are some ‘repeate’r words Khurki thinks are quite common among us:

1. Khana-vaana khaa liya?


When you want someone to accompany you for a walk, this is what you ask.

2. Phone-vone kar liya karo kabhi!

When you meet a friend after Loooooong.

3. Dost-doost se poochle?


It’s when you need a particular thing and you tell someone to look for it or it can be anything.

4. Kam-koom kar le koi?


When you’re ‘vella’ for the day and someone tells you to do some work!

5. Kharcha-varcha kitna ho jayega?


When you’re planning to explore something new.

6. Baat-vaat kar na us se?


When you need the participation of the third person.

7. Chai-Vai peeyien?

When you need someone for the ‘Chai-Break‘.

8. Samajh-Soomajh aayi ke nahin?


When you’re just tired of explaining!

9. Shaam-Vaam ko chalenge yaar!!


Too hot outside, you just don’t wanna go!

10. Maang-Moong le kisi se?


When you’ve not completed your practical file and your friend tells you to do so. LOL.

11. Movie-Maavi or Picture-Victure dekhne chalein?

Cinema goers watch Bollywood movie "Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge" (The Big Hearted Will Take the Bride), starring actor Shah Rukh Khan, inside Maratha Mandir theatre in Mumbai July 11, 2010. The movie has set a record of completing 770 weeks of continuous screening at a cinema, a feat unmatched by any other Bollywood movie the world over. The movie is screened only in the morning and has special ticket rates which range from $0.30 to $0.40 (15 to 20 Indian rupees). According to Maratha Mandir owner Manoj Desai, the movie, which is still being screened, enjoys at least 60 to 70 percent occupancy on weekdays and a full house on weekends at his theatre.
