Repetitions – to form an adverbial adjective

Besides adding a “dengan” before them, with adjectives there is another way to make an adverb out of them – repetitions. I walk slowly Saya berjalan pelan-pelan.

However, use this form carefully because unlike using the “dengan” method, which will immediately make no sense when used with certain adjectives like colours or measurements, this form will be accepted for ANY adjectives grammatically but will have a different semantics. Observe : Dengan biru makes no sense Biru-biru show the adjective’s dominance.

Dengan lebar makes no sense Lebar-lebar can either emphasize the adjective or show the adjective’s dominance.

Very Interesting linguistic info from, the

The -lude in today’s word is the same as the one in allude, elude, and prelude.
What are all these ludes and why do they not stand without prefix support? Their noble ancestor is Latin ludus, “play, game, sport,” and this is a key to understanding an early meaning of interlude: a small entertainment performed between others.

Today interlude more typically denotes a period that interrupts two connected activities or episodes.
