A number of psychiatric disorders also produce abnormalities in the form of speech, such as the low volume mumbling of some socially anxious or depressed individuals, the slowness of speech of psychomotor retardation, manic pressure of speech, and the prosodic abnormalities that may occur in some psychotic states or autism. Vocal tics may occur alone or in combination with motor tics.
