Definition

North Indians love "echo" sounds tagged onto nouns that result in sing-song words that enliven conversations and inject playfulness into the vernacular.
Examples of these double-baralled words include:

Suitboot
eating-veating
marriage-sharriage
ice-cream-fice-cream

There are infinite variations...

Usage

Too much meat-veat is going to make me look like a fatty bombalatty for my shadi-vadi next week. I won't be able to fit into my suitboot yar!
