Dorian De Wind explains a polyglot’s dilemma: Which Language Do You Dream In?
It doesn’t happen that often any more, but there are still times when my English-born wife gently—sometimes not so gently—awakens me in the middle of the night to tell me that I have been talking in my sleep again…in Spanish.
Invariably, she will ask me in the morning what I was talking about. Invariably, my answer is that I don’t remember, which most of the time is the truth. Needless to say, at my age of 68 she need not worry—not even about my dreams.
While I’m not Mr. De Wind’s age, I know exactly how he feels.
And to answer his question, English or Spanish (never both in the same dream), and back years ago when I was visiting France, French.
