clanging 

PSYCHIATRY

A pattern of disorganised speech–e.g., rhyming, alliteration, in which a word’s sound, rather than its meaning, directs subsequent associations, a finding common in schizophrenia.

In clanging, spoken language becomes senseless associations rather than a vehicle for communication.  

Synonyms Clang association, klang association
