echolalia \ˌe-kō-ˈlā-lē-ə\ noun: the often pathological repetition of what is said by other people as if echoing them

Etymology: New Latin

It must be really annoying to live with someone afflicted with echolalia.

Unless you liked to sing/write rounds or fugues. o_o Actually, no, that would still be annoying, just occasionally useful. But only if you had several. Which, if you increase the craziness exponentially for each new, um, echolalian, would involve an exploded head, which is decidedly counterproductive if you are trying to perform a fugue.
