Abstract : Languages are conduits of human culture and heritage which have been a part of our cultural and intellectual diversity. The process of word-formation plays an eminent role in linguistics and ‘Reduplication’ stands as one of the major phenomena in word-formation. This paper presents the structural analysis of reduplicative words in Eastern Indo-Aryan languages of Bihar. By means of examining the usage of reduplicative words in certain native languages of Bihar, it makes an attempt to revise the beauty of multilingualism. It aims at preserving native languages from becoming extinct and promote linguistic diversity. Exploratory methodology has been used to clarify the range of productivity in reduplication. Data has been collected followed by the survey. The output of the questionnaire has been represented through bar graphs and pie charts.

The result indicated that the usage of reduplicative words in everyday conversations is highest in Maithili and least in Bajjika. The survey denotes that reduplication of words make speech easier, expressive and convenient in day-to-day life. The findings state that complete reduplication is used more than partial reduplication by the native speakers of Bihar. The study reviews certain phonological, syntactical and morphological process of reduplication on a wide scale. The research is anticipated to preserve sufficient data for future researchers and giving it back to the community.
