Recently I've heard words like ただただ and ゆっくりゆっくり showing up. I guessed that saying adverbs one more time over again puts more emphasis on them, but I'm not at all sure if that's true. (Always means something else entirely?)
Besides the meaning, can you do this with any adverb? Or is it like the "verb form" り (例え 楽しみ 飲み) where which verbs you can make into it vary greatly?
I know that words like 時々 and 色々 Have completely different meanings from 時 and 色 of course, that repeating verbs has its own separate meaning (休み休み)、
Is there any rules to follow with repetition? Or can you you make anything 畳語？ Please outline any rules.
