Interrogative particles

ko-ko- को को]_: Repetition of the interrogative particles. We use the repetition to express the fact that the answer has a plural meaning. The same process exists in languages such as Mongolian (from the same author: Introduction to the Mongolian Language - www.voyagemongolie.com).
