> The main take home is that depersonalization may be specifically linked to alexithymia

That source suggests no such thing. All it's saying is that there are overlaps in symptoms between different psychological disorders.

Second article pretty much is the same thing.

Third article again is pretty much the same thing, showing how certain symptoms may overlap. The sources you are citing ONE, are very brief abstracts. Not only are they very brief and unspecific, the type of dissociation it seems that is related to shizotypy is non pathological dissociation, which is a type of dissociation every human being experiences. The non pathological end involves simple daydreaming and zoning out. Pathological dissociation, meaning in the context of a dissociative disorder, is involuntary and is used as a defense mechanism. If you want a good read on the context of all dissociative disorders, I suggest you buy this book.

I am also not able to find anything backing up what you said about Depersonalization being a symptom of Cotard's Delusion.

>Nobody thinks that stress by itself causes cotards syndrome, schizotypy, or autism, yet those are all situations where DP can be central

Again, no research has stated that Depersonalization is a symptom specific to those disorders. The sources you cited didn't support that, they only showed how people with certain disorders may be more likely to experience dissociation, but that dissociation is not a defining feature of any of those disorders.

Here's a good free read on dissociation:
