    Post what are these kind of words?

    Hi,
    I saw some words:

    mumbo-jumbo
    willy-nilly
    riff-raff
    wishy-washy
    hurly-burly

    what are these kind of words?what are their names?they are like Idioms.
    How can I find more words like these ?

    Hello, Zoly. I don't think that that they have any special name, Zoly though I could be wrong. And I've never seen them collected anywhere other than in dictionaries in their alphabetical position.
