I seem to remember an earlier discussion on the prevalence of repeating a
word for emphasis. For example, "do you like him, like him or just like
him?" But since I cannot remember the exact words a search of the archive
was fruitless. Anybody else remember?

Also, I guess "new new thing" (as opposed to the old new thing) is a new
way of saying hip, with it, vogue. Any other nominees for what's au courant
for au courant?
