How does one copy file(s) without the extension(s) ?

>copy *.* a:\*
>(using A: as an example target).
I think I'd modify the command slightly (just to be sure) by putting a
period after that last asterisk:
copy *.* a:\*.

I'm trying to learn DOS a little bit. When I use the command COPY to copy
several files like:
COPY filea + fileb \directoryname
It only copies the multiple files into 1 file (with the first filename
appended). Using the command that way: COPY filea + filea
\directoryname\filea + fileb doesn't work and fileb loses its contents,
replaced by the contents of filea. What am I doing wrong?
How do you type the COPY command for several filenames and have it copy
all the files individually like when you use the * wild card and have them
all retain their own original filenames ? Thank you for replying my newbie
