    <dct:description>&lt;p&gt;In this chapter, we shed new light on the reduplicative processes of Mandarin Chinese and&lt;br&gt; assess the structural and interpretive properties of the input/base and output of these word&lt;br&gt; formation phenomena. In particular, we focus on the categorial status of the base and ad-&lt;br&gt; dress the issue of whether reduplication applies to category-free roots or full-fledged lex-&lt;br&gt; emes. Empirically, the privileged domain of research is increasing reduplication of disyllabic&lt;br&gt; bases, or, as we dub it in the chapter, the AABB pattern, which is compared with diminishing&lt;br&gt; reduplication, expressed by the template ABAB. The comparison between the two phenom-&lt;br&gt; ena allows us to show that increasing and diminishing reduplication differ in the nature of&lt;br&gt; the input units involved. On the grounds of a wide-ranging class of data, we argue that Man-&lt;br&gt; darin reduplication takes base units of different &amp;lsquo;size&amp;rsquo;: word/lexeme-like units provided with&lt;br&gt; category, namely verbs in the case of diminishing reduplication, and categoryless roots in&lt;br&gt; the case of increasing reduplication. Throughout the chapter, we explore some category neu-&lt;br&gt; tral properties of increasing reduplication and propose a unitary semantic operation capable&lt;br&gt; to derive the various interpretive nuances of this phenomenon across lexical categories.&lt;/p&gt;</dct:description>
