: : Can anyone tell me if there is a term for the study of words that have multiple, consecutive, identical syllables such as the word "murmur". Additionally, can anyone think of other such words that are not nonsensical words.

: Tomtom, frou-frou, tutu, juju, berber, dada, ack-ack, maumau, plenty of babytalk examples like mama, papa and booboo and the majorly cheating hotshots (*grin*), to name a few. There'll be plenty more, I'm sure.

If there *isn't* "a term for the study of words that have multiple, consecutive, identical syllables" I would like to nominate "ologyology."
