Good one.

Learned something today.

Yes

Peculiarities of movement are common in catatonia. Stereotypies, repetitive performing of apparently meaningless activities, are common. These may take the form of repetitive actions or sounds. Verbigeration refers to the presence of repetitive apparently meaningless utterances.

Verbigeration describes the repetition of words or syllables that expressive aphasic patients .

It can be present in LD / anxious patients but it is not characteristics of CATATONIA .

Ref.Sims ,Third edition, page179
