Echolalia

What is Echolalia?

Echolalia (also known as echologia or echophrasia) is the automatic repetition of vocalizations made by another person (by the same person is called palilalia). It is one of the echophenomena, closely related to echopraxia, the automatic repetition of movements made by another person; both are "subsets of imitative behavior" whereby sounds or actions are imitated "without explicit awareness".

The word "echolalia" is derived from the Greek , meaning "echo" or "to repeat", and (laliá) meaning "speech" or "talk" (of onomatopoeic origin, from the verb (laléo), meaning "to talk").
