Echolalia... echolalia...

Echolalia is the repeating of words or sounds heard. This can be immediate or delayed. An example of immediate echolalia could be meowing back at a cat. Delayed echolalia can be part of scripting, or for fun.

Immediate echolalia[edit]

Immediate echolalia is repeating a sound, word, or phrase right after hearing it. It could be anything from a single word to a whole sentence. Some people even translate what they hear into another language.

Delayed echolalia[edit]

More detail please!


Echolagia is when you repeat what you heard internally, rather than out loud.
