Долго ли, коротко ли: выражение длительности с помощью редупликации в бесленеевском диалекте кабардино-черкесского языка

The present paper deals with two cases of predicate reduplication in the Besleney dialect of the Kabardian language (idiom spoken in Ulap village, Adyghe Republic). The reduplicated constructions mark the duration or the regularity of a situation and seem to form an antonymic pair. In addition, one of the constructions shows futher semantic development and can also mark the highest degree of the main feature of an object.
