The Greek word for "again" or "backward" is palin.
The Greek verb for speaking is "lalein."
Palilalia is a speech disorder characterized by "involuntary repetition of words, phrases, or sentences."
Which may explain why we keep hearing the governor of Alaska tell us about her opposition to the Bridge to Nowhere.
The word she seems to repeat most, however, is "exceptional." America's an exceptional country, those listening to her are exceptional Americans. Given her support for hostilities against Russia, one's forced to assume that she really is a hard core American exceptionalist. Which rather does argue that both she and her running mate are running for Bush's third term.
I, like most Americans, take exception to that idea.
