Reduplicated Conjunctive Participles

When a conjunctive participle is reduplicated (the verb stem is repeated), it indicates an action that is repeated many times.

मैं यह आवाज़ सुनसुनके परेशान हो रहा हूं – “I’m getting annoyed listening to that sound again and again!”

वह काम करकरके थक गई – “She got tired from working over and over again”
