This paper studies lexical reduplication in São Tomense, a Portuguese-based Creole language. Its central claim is that lexical reduplication in São Tomense results from the external merge of the same lexical item in two structural slots available in independently-motivated syntactic structures: the modification structure and the coordination structure.
