Why do we Guyanese repeat a single word…? sometimes we even say it more than twice eg such emphasis!!

like ‘ bai dis mango sweet sweet ‘ ..

Or dat gyal “nice nice” or ‘fine fine’

Or d water “rough rough “

or me belly “full full’

or yuh foot battam “black black’

or we add ‘BAD’ after eg this mango sweet BAD! Lol

couldnt we just use “VERY” before the word like very nice or very hard!!

Lynn nah only "VERY" sweet, she izz sweet, sweet, sweet an' very, very, very pretty.
