Amredita

In Sanskrit grammar, an amredita is a compound consisting of the same word repeated twice, but with the first occurrence being accented.[1] Amreditas are used to express repetitiveness; for example, from dív (day) we obtain divé-dive (day after day, daily) and from devá (god) we obtain deváṃ-devam or devó-devas (god after god).[2]
