I am working on reduplicated quotative constructions in Panjabi, and am looking for (potential) examples of such constructions (full reduplication with the function of direct quotation) in other languages, whether from South Asia or elsewhere. A Panjabi example of the type of construction I am researching is:
mai~ ful paawar ful paawar paRhiyaa
I full power full power read
'I read, "Full power".'
Also, if anyone has encountered similar examples in earlier stages of Indo-Aryan languages, I would be extremely interested to hear of those.
