Find the examples of the following:

Stem-suffix(es) where stem=suffix(es)

I have found around 25 examples so far. 1 to 5 examples are OK. Please do not submit more than 5 (give a chance to others).

 

I will give one example for a start:

uyuzuyuz = we are sick of him

Nobody is interested in my puzzle?

 

Come on guys. You need to scan your memories and spot some relations. It´s good for your brains...

 

Here´s another easy one:

 

dur = stop (intransitive verb)

durdur = stop it (transitive verb)

arar ´he calls´

 

Well, not this one. Because stem = ara.

 

arar

 

Actually I find similar ones that don´t qualify:

 

dilerdiler

salarsalar

Yes you´re right. I´ll take it back. And suggest this:
