A regualr Reader asked me about SLEEP TALKING, what causes it, and what might be done to stop it.  It’s several years since I’ve thought about this particular condition, known medically as somniloquy. Nearly 50% of children do it and only 4-5% of adults experience the phenomeon. One person I knew did Sleep Singing in high school, really suprising his mom at 6:00 AM one morning.

A moderately long list of things can cause sleep talking and sometimes it can be attached to violence or recognized mental health disorders, so its best to consult a doctor in each troubling case. Learn more about it at:
