“Ye haue one sorte of repetition, which we call the doubler, and is as the next before, a speedie iteration of one word, but with some little intermission by inserting one or two words betweene, as in a most excellent dittie written by Sir Walter Raleigh these two closing verses:”
“In the past, crews have repaired cracks in the external tank by removing the cracked aluminum and replacing it with a "doubler" -- a twice-as-thick section -- before replacing the foam insulation.”
“If you experience wetting problems, buy small "doubler" pads to add as needed.”
“Crews have repaired similar cracks during external tank production by removing the cracked aluminum and replacing it with a "doubler," which is a twice-as-thick stringer section before replacing the foam insulation.”
“Mom’s system: Single cotton microfiber inserts thin during the day, sometimes adding a hemp "doubler" insert if we will be out-of-the-house for several hours.”
“Managers and engineers are reviewing the data and evaluating the repair options that may include adding a doubler or stop drilling to prevent the crack from spreading.”
“The article does mention a possible voltage doubler circuit, depending on the design, so in that case 140 vs 120 volts might make a difference.”
“It is not allowed in court because it doesn ` t pass we call either the doubler (ph) or the fry hearing.”
“Especially that doublé can also mean 1. overtaken - as in doubler une voiture sur la route, 2. dubbed - as in film doublé en Français 3. double-crossed - doubler quelqu'un 4. increased twofold - as in "le nombre de crimes a doublé”
