We don't have any evidence about what reduplication means, but pi phrases are well understood. Reduplication is not productive in toki pona for any systematic purpose. So:
mi sin pi mute mute. I'm really new.
mi sin pi mute lili. I'm kind of new.
mi sin pi lili mute. I'm not really new at all.
Also, kin the word that gives a phrase an emphatic sense and is always correct-- no controversy.

irq (especially if jan Kute is there)
twitter -check out the account of @janMato
tokilili - requires manual approval of accounts now, but 100% of the users there are there to use toki pona.
You can find the links at my fan website: http://tokipona.net/tp/ look for external resources.
