Reduplicatives never travel alone. In fact, they always come in pairs and sometimes sound rather silly. These are the words formed through reduplication, when you repeat a word to form a new one, or slightly change the vowel or consonant. These are inventive and musical words and there are hundreds of them in English.

Egyptian example : Boutros Boutros Ghali.

Philatelic expression : Hodge Podge.

Germany Inflation stamps "zig zag" roulette.

Never come across Walla Walla or Kurri Kurri prior to this.

Fabulous socked on the nose, on the KGV sidefaces.

Amazing! I never knew there was a Walla Walla in New South Wales. I was only aware of the one in Washington State (USA).

I don't have any examples in my collection, I'm afraid, but I'd love to find a Volapük postcard with a Walla Walla postmark! (Dr. M. W. Wood, author of the 1889 Dictionary of Volapük, founded a Volapük society at Fort Walla Walla in June 1888.)

From a mis spent youth,
there was a "Walla Walla" in the "Witch Doctor" song (1958)


I told the Witch Doctor I was in love with you
And the Witch Doctor he told me what to do
He told me Ooo eee oo ah ah
Ting tang walla walla bing bang
Ooo eee oo ah ah
Ting tang walla walla bang bang

To illustrate the one just mentioned:
Walla Walla, Washington (is that 3x?)



And another, Kokomo, Indiana:



And how about:
Kaskaskia, Illinois (but not Kankakee, Illinois or Keokuk, Iowa.)
Eighty Eight, Kentucky
Pawpaw, Michigan

Goodness me, I thought I'd barely get a page.
Language is fascinating.
Goody-Goody.

Reduplicatives in the initial element eg Walkie-Talkie

Reduplicatives in the medial vowel eg Criss-Cross or .....Ping Pong

humuhumunukunukupuaa or 'HumaHuma' is sometimes used for a number of Hawaiian triggerfish.
https://lookintohawaii.com/hawaii/3...l-islands-hi

But in the saltwater fish trade, HumaHuma specifically means the Rhinecanthus aculeatus shown below. They are relatively inexpensive.


The Clown Trigger, shown in Rodney's post above, is the 'King of Trigger fish' and is quite expensive.

All trigger fish are tough customers and have teeth and strong jaws. They are easily capable of munching on coral and turning it into fine sand.
