Intraverbal responding is defined by NOT having point-to-point correspondence between was the listener hears and how they respond. This verbal operant is essentially reciprocal conversation. A speaker says (emits) “something” and the listener responds with an answer that does not echo what they heard, and typically results in the original speaker (now the listener) responding to what they heard. Basically, intraverbal responding is having a conversation, somebody says something, the listener responds, then that response elicits a new response, and the cycle continues until it is either interrupted or there is no more desire to continue.
