This study investigates the use of morphological features of Rangri language that is spoken in many areas of Pakistan. Rangri is (as pronounced {rɑ̃gɽi}) an Indo-Aryan language spoken in different parts of Sindh and Punjab in Pakistan as this language is undocumented and not much recognized by authorities as an official or regional language.  Reduplication in Rangri language within the paradigm of morpho-redoubling theory has been employed in order to examine the function of Total reduplication, Partial or Echo Reduplication, and Non-sensical Reduplication in Rangri language. Data was collected purposefully through random observation by the researcher of the vernacular speakers of the Rangri language such as /gel-gel/ means altogether (Total Reduplication), /loug-lagai/ means husband wife (Partial Reduplication), and /bhein-bhein/ means to mumble nonsense (Non-sensical Redulication). Result showed that Rangri is still spoken in some of the areas of Pakistan and India with a rich inclusion of reduplications in the daily discourse of the speech communities of those areas.
