Language is a tool that meets all kinds of abstract and concrete concepts in the universe. The words that describe the movements of these beings and their relations with each other are provided by this tool. However, the emotions and thoughts of human beings are among the concepts that should be expressed in language. Therefore, since there are so many concepts, facts and objects that need to be expressed, languages begin to operate a number of mechanisms in their internal structures. One of these mechanisms is repetitive structures and the other is supra-segmental units.
Repetitive structures take place in any size from language to voice, leaving a number of effects to the meaning of the sentence. This effect, sometimes to reveal the deep meaning of the meaning, sometimes to clarify the meaning, or sometimes to create a borderline or harmony occurs as a result. The predicates within the syntactic structures can also be used as repetitive structures. The predicates, as they are the main elements of sentences, affect all but not part of the sentence when used repeatedly. This allows speaker’s emotions and thoughts to dominate the whole sentence. Of course, only repetitive predicates are not a means of transferring speaker’s emotions and thoughts. Supra-segmental units also support repeating structures such as tone, accent, melody and speed and it allows to transfer of emotions of speaker as regret, surprise, reassure, advice etc.
In this study, the meanings of the words which were taken in the same form as names and verbs, which are likely to be predicate positions, were examined. As a result of this study, it has been determined that repeated predicates are used as modal markers with supra-segmental units and some comments have been made on these.
