noise really

anonymous asked:

What are some examples of communicating through echolalia? What counts? What does it sort of mean, communicating through echolalia?

Short version: echolalia is anything you repeat to communicate, for stimming.

Longer, more complicated version: Communicating through echolalia means taking a sound, a phrase, or a combination of the two, and using that as substitution for meaning, well, anything, that last beyond the typical developmental range for that behavior.

So, if you say, “Do you want juice,” I might echo that back to you, “Do you want juice?” to mean, “Yes.” Or I might answer you by saying, “Juice, juice, juice,” to mean yes.

I can also use a noise that doesn’t really mean anything to mean yes. For example, I might just make a J sound you. Even more abstract, I might just grunt.

The thing I say or the noise I make does not have to be related directly to what the meaning of my words. It only has to make sense to my internal logic, and if you don’t know my language it won’t make any sense to you.

For example, “Grandma goes to the grocery store,” could mean, “Yes, I want some juice,” because I once went to the grocery store with my grandmother. I maybe, “Daddy drives a red car,” because a character I like on T.V. had a dad that drove a red car to the grocery store.

To make things even more complex, that depending on my language skills, a sound I make could mean, “daddy drives a red car,” and if you didn’t know me well enough to know I like this particular cartoon character, and that particular cartoon character’s dad drives a red car, and that is the noise I make for red cars, you are never going to piece together what I am vocalizing.

Some of my personal echolalia include things like:

Elevator go down the hooooooooole, which means exactly what it sounds like; 
shiny captain, for anything good; Oh my gosh, because I just like the way it “sounds” in my head; Ok so, from a very old meme, which means I am about to infodump; Fucking kangaroos, which I say with no context because I enjoy it, and many, many others.

I know we’re all pretty down rn so here, have some cute pics of svalbard reindeer

it’s the smallest subspecies of reindeer on the planet and it loves you

the svalbard reindeer is also the northernmost herbivore in the world, and during winter they survive an average of −16°C (3°F) weather

look at those small fluffy ears and kind eyes, the reindeer is cheering you all on to stay strong in these trying times 

just like the arctic winter, this too shall pass

the svaldbard reindeer proves that even under the most extreme of circumstances, life finds a way. so please, please keep on fighting


quiet night

theres just a what-if here about ritsu getting just a bit of psychic empathy and achieving the rest with his writers brain, and theres also a headcanon about mob not being a very good singer or not playing any instrument but being able to whistle very well 

I remember theres a word for that, the very good whistler thing, from a jeffery deaver book Ive read, but I cant find it in my memory anymore

I kinda want it back

friend: hey, you play the tuba?

me: yea

friend: play something for me

me: ok, this ones called “boat noise”

me: *blows really hard into tuba for 5 seconds and stops*

keep up!

Requests: “You are one of the only blogs that write quality Barry Allen smut, so thank you. Can you please write a Barry smut where he always is gentle with the reader because he doesn’t want to lose control with his powers. One night she confronts him and a night of vibrating hands and speedy enhancements occur? Thank you 💕” Credits to gif owners!

It was the same thing every time. Slow thrust, kiss, whisper your love for each other and then hand holding. You loved every second of that. Barry told you every single hour that he loved you. And all he did was make love to you, nice and slow, where you could be close to each other and rest your foreheads together. You loved Barry with all your heart but slow just didn’t cut it for you anymore.

The first time you confronted Barry about it, he reasoned with you, sped up a little bit and you made a really strange noise (indicating you loved it) and he figured he hurt you by accident because he was too fast. If Barry even thought about thoroughly fucking you, he would start to vibrate. But he’d never touch you when he did, his excitement about his fantasy would scare him into thinking he would lose control.
