eat
He does nothing but eat. OR: He keeps on eating.
Comment:
For verbs with both short and long forms, the long form must be repeated and the first syllable stressed on both occasions to have an augmentative meaning (unstressed short form + long form with stressed first syllable would have attenuated reading).
