Question How 2 find a duplicate word in a text file

If I have this variable-length text file containing a record such as:

newone:batam elf: *:newone:

My quest is What Linux command can I use to find duplicate words in a stream of records, and display those lines on the screen?
I cannot find such command anywhere except those that show how to find files.

Thank you anyone for your help !!!

I dont think that native linux will do that, but you can write a perl script in about 3 minutes to do exactly that.
