    Hi,

     

    You might be thinking about the term 'perseveration', which is the term used for repeating things over and over. Perseveration is one of a few examples of disorganized speech that sometimes accompanies schizophrenia. A different example is 'echolalia' in which the person repeats (echoes) the utterances someone else is making.

     

    Hope that help

    Best,
