1. The immediate and sometimes pathological repetition of the words of others, often found in autistic children. In delayed echolalia this inappropriate echoing takes place hours or weeks later.
  2. Parrot-like repetition of overheard words or fragments of speech.  It may be part of a developmental disorder, a neurologic disorder, or schizophrenia.  Echolalia tends to be repetitive and persistent and is often uttered with a mocking, mumbling, or staccato intonation.  See also list of neurologic deficits.
