The pathological, parrotlike, and apparently senseless repetition (echoing) of a word or phrase just spoken by another person...spoken by another person. :)
Repetition by imitation of the movements of another. The action is not a willed or voluntary one and has a semiautomatic and uncontrollable quality.
A recurrence of a memory, felling, or perceptual experience from the past.
A nearly continuous flow of accelerated speech with abrupt changes from topic to topic that are usually based on understandable associations, distracting stimuli, or plays on words. When severe, speech may be disorganized and incoherent.
flight of ideas
A persistent aversion toward some or all of those physical characteristics or social roles that connote one's own biological sex.
gender dysphoria
A person's inner conviction of being male or female.
gender identity

gender role
Recurrent, intrusive, and anxiety-provoking thoughts, impulses, or images.
Repetitive behaviors or mental acts that a person feels driven to perform.
A sensory perception that has the compelling sense of reality of a true perception but that occurs without external stimulation of the relevant sensory organ. (WORD)s should be distinguished from illusions, in which an actual external stimulus is misperceived or misinterpreted. The person may or may not have insight into the fact that he or she is having a (WORD). One person with auditory (WORD)s may recognize that he or she is having a false sensory experience, whereas another may be convinced that the source of the sensory experience has an independent physical reality. The term (WORD) is not ordinarily applied to the false perceptions that occur during dreaming, while falling asleep (hypnagogic), or when awakening (hypnopompic). Transient (WORD) experiences may occur in people without a mental disorder.
A hallucination involving the perception of sound, most commonly of voices. Some clinicians and investigators would not include those experiences perceived as coming from inside the head and would instead limit the concept of true (WORD) hallucinations to those sounds whose source is perceived as being external. However, as used in DSM-IV, no distinction is made as to whether the source of the voices is perceived as being inside or outside of the head.
auditory hallucination
A hallucination involving the perception of taste (usually unpleasant).
gustatory hallucination
A hallucination involving the perception of a physical experience localized within the body (such as a feeling of electricity). A (WORD) hallucination is to be distinguished from physical sensations arising from an as-yet undiagnosed general medical condition, from hypochondriacal preoccupation with normal physical sensations, and from a tactile hallucination.
somatic hallucination
A hallucination involving the perception of being touched or of something being under one's skin. The most common (WORD) hallucinations are the sensation of electric shocks and formication (the sensation of something creeping or crawling on or under the skin).
tactile hallucination
A hallucination involving sight, which may consist of formed images, such as of people, or of unformed images, such as flashes of light. (WORD) hallucinations should be distinguished from illusins, which are miserceptions of real external stimuli.
visual hallucination
