Do you talk in your sleep (somniloquy)?

 

Your chances of having done it in the past are 50%, since a study found that half of the children talk in their sleep before puberty. Most children outgrow it with only 4% of the population still sleep talking in adulthood.

 

My sleep talking goes beyond what most others experience because I both sleep walk and sleep talk. For example, I’ve been known to answer the phone and talk to a friend and have no recollection the next morning. The person I talked to would tell me that I carried out a normal conversation with them, but I’d have zero recall of it. Thus, all of my close friends avoid calling me at night.

 

As for my sleep walking, that’s a story for another day.

寝言

『寝言を言いますか?』

 

過去に寝言を言った確率は50%。研究によると思春期を迎える前には子供の半分は寝言を言ったことがあると判明されている。しかし、その後、たった4%は大人になってからまだ寝言を言うそうだ。

 

私の寝言は一般的な寝言者が経験するものを超えているだろう。なぜらなば、私は寝言だけではなく、夢中歩行もする。例えば、電話に出て、相手と話しても翌朝、その記憶は全くない。話した相手は『私が普通に話していた』と言っても、何も覚えていない。それで、私を知っている人たちは夜に電話を掛けて来ない。

 

夢中歩行についてはまた別の日の話し…
