Ah, a word which induces the very thing it refers to. (There must be a word for that.)
FDR: spoke of phobiphobia (3/4/33 Inaugural Speech)
"I am certain that my fellow Americans expect that on my induction into the Presidency I will address them with a candor and a decision which the present situation of our people impel. This is preeminently the time to speak the truth, the whole truth, frankly and boldly. Nor need we shrink from honestly facing conditions in our country today. This great Nation will endure as it has endured, will revive and will prosper. So, first of all, let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself—nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance. In every dark hour of our national life a leadership of frankness and vigor has met with that understanding and support of the people themselves which is essential to victory. I am convinced that you will again give that support to leadership in these critical days."

echolalia, copalalia, and last but not least, copafeelia!
How about "Mooslookmeguntic?"
Nice wordplay there, patrask.
Your second word, though, should be "coprolalia". (By the way, this once rare condition is becoming epidemic.)
As in; "Lucy, can jue splane yourself?"
She stood silently looking out into the great sallow distances of sea bottom, as if recalling something, her yellow eyes soft and moist...
(It's Talk Like A Pirate Day!)
Ay, tis, tis!
Then avoid the hempen halter and the black spot today, matey!
Very well, then:
Arrrr! I've heard of someone being squiffed, but "Squiffy"?
"GONG!" Though a Hoot...To the mizzen mast with the swab!
Off topic, but now I wonder when "Murmur" was the word of the day
If there is a God, I know he likes to rock.
