Sleep Talking – Gabby

Sleep talking is formally known as Somniloquy. Somniloquy is a sleep disorder defined as talking during sleep without being aware of it. Sleep talking can involve complicated dialogues or monologues, it can consist of complete gibberish or mumbling. I chose to do sleep talking because, I know that I have talked in my sleep before and I know other people talk in their sleep as well.While researching about this topic I found out that sleep talking is most common in males and in children. I am not saying women don’t sleep talk, but males are more common to talk in their sleep. What causes sleep talk or Somniloquy is┬ástress, depression, daytime drowsiness, alcohol, nightmares, not getting enough sleep, and REM (rapid eye movement).

This has changed my thinking because before I researched on this topic i thought that people just talk in their sleep but now I know that there are reasons why people sleep talk.
