STRONGS G945:
βαττολογέω [T WH βατταλ. (with א B, see WH's Appendix, p. 152)], -ῶ: 1 aorist subjunctive βαττολογήσω;
a. to stammer, and, since stammerers are accustomed to repeat the same sounds,
b. to repeat the same things over and over, to use many and idle words, to babble, prate; so Matthew 6:7, where it is explained by ἐν τῇ πολυλογίᾳ, (Vulg. multum loqui; [A. V. to use vain repetitions]); cf. Tholuck at the passage. Some suppose the word to be derived from Battus, a king of Cyrene, who is said to have stuttered (Herodotus 4, 155); others from Battus, an author of tedious and wordy poems; but comparing βατταρίζειν, which has the same meaning, and βάρβαρος (which see), it seems far more probable that the word is onomatopoetic. (Simplicius, in Epictetus [ench. 30 at the end], p. 340, Schweigh edition.)
