Reduplication

 

in linguistics, complete or partial repetition of a root, stem, or word. Reduplication may express plurality, as in the Malay orang (“person”) and orangorang (“people”). It may be used to intensify an action or quality, as in the Russian khodish’-khodish’ (“you walk and walk”) and bol’shoi-bol’shoi (“very big”). Sometimes an adjective formed by reduplication expresses a lesser degree of a quality, as exemplified by the Malagasy fotsi-fotsi (“whitish”). Reduplication may also express different aspectual and other meanings in a verb. In the Indo-European languages, there is partial reduplication in the formation of the perfect and present. Reduplication is also used in onomatopoeic expressions, such as the Russian ku-ku (the call of the cuckoo) and the English “tick-tick.”

Third, for the first time, we report the molecular cytogenetic evidence of extra copies of the MLL gene due to a tandem triplication of the chromosomal band segment 11q21-23 containing the MLL gene.
This anomalous fragment was not consistent with any known deletion or triplication of the [alpha]-globin locus and was attributed initially to a polymorphism on one allele that abolished the recognition sequence at an internal BglII site located between the [alpha.sub.2] and [alpha.sub.1]-globin genes.
A Sri Lankan study of individuals with severe to moderate [beta]-thalassemia revealed a 2% frequency of [alpha]-globin gene triplications (6), whereas a preliminary study in Hong Kong suggests that the frequency of [alpha]-globin gene triplication carriers among individuals with [beta]-thalassemia and iron deficiency is -3.3% (E.S.K.
However, triplication of an existing [TR.sub.34] on tebuconazole exposure was selected in vitro, and a novel variant, [TR.sub.46.sup.3], found in clinical and environmental samples, has been derived from sexual mating between [TR.sub.46] parents (8,9).
To make the system resilient, different crosstalk avoidance codes such as the DAP [3] or Dual Rail (DR) code [16], Boundary Shift Code (BSC) [17], Modified Dual Rail Code (MDR), triplication error correction scheme [23] and Multi-Bit Random and Burst Error Correction code with crosstalk avoidance (MBRBEC) [19] are coupled with FEC scheme.
