This study investigated whether the processes involved in autistic echolalia include anything beyond rote mechanical parroting. The results confirmed the position that this study's autistic child recognized certain grammatical relations in his sentence repetitions. This finding is in accord with Slobin (1971) and others who suggest that recognition of syntactical structures and meaning play important roles in memory for speech.
