I just recently learned the term and it is what my husband does. Not constantly but often enough that it can get annoying. He will randomly repeat what is on the radio, what other people in the room say, etc. 

He seems unaware that he does it. It is done almost immediately after he hears something and unmitigated. 

We don't have a diagnosis of dementia as of yet, but he has clear symptoms. There doesn't seem to be alot of info on Echolalia. Is it tied to a particular dementia?
