  1. clanging

    Clanging is a type of speech disorder characterized by speech or language that is driven by word sound rather than by word meaning, resulting in speech that is difficult or impossible to understand. This is often connected to certain mental health conditions, including schizophrenia or mania. The use of clanging usually consists of strings of words or phrases that are connected by sound rather than coherent ideas, such as rhyming words or alliteration.

  1. Clanging

    In psychology and psychiatry, clanging refers to a mode of speech characterized by association of words based upon sound rather than concepts. For example, this may include compulsive rhyming or alliteration without apparent logical connection between words. This is associated with the irregular thinking apparent in psychotic mental illnesses. Clanging refers specifically to behavior that is situationally inappropriate. While a poet rhyming is not evidence of mental illness, disorganized speech that impedes the patient's ability to communicate is a disorder in itself, often seen in schizophrenia.
