In audio signal processing and acoustics, an echo (plural echoes) is a reflection of sound, arriving at the listener some time after the direct sound. Typical examples are the echo produced by the bottom of a well, by a building, or by the walls of an enclosed room and an empty room. A true echo is a single reflection of the sound source. The time delay is the extra distance divided by the speed of sound. The word echo derives from the Greek ἠχώ (ēchō),<ref>ἠχώ, Henry George Liddell, Robert Scott, A Greek-English Lexicon, on Perseus</ref> itself from ἦχος (ēchos), "sound".
