The concept I am describing is when the same lexical root is repeated in a sentence to provide emphasis.
For example, note the repetition of QCP in Zechariah 1:2 - "The L-rd was angry with anger" (i.e., the L-rd was very angry). In this instance, the lexical root has the same basic meaning in both occurrences.<<
I don't know why this hasn't been mentioned (I'd forgotten it myself), but the official term is 'infinitive absolute.'
