Why do people talk in their sleep?
Caoimhe, Olivia, Rheya, Aidan

All most all of us at some point have been told that we talk in our sleep. It can be a disturbing thing to hear that you talk in your sleep. You think, "Did I spill the beans." You may wonder, "Did I say something embarrassing?" There is also a possibility that our words revealed some deep desire of which we would be unaware. Sleep talking is also known by the name somniloquy. It may occur during both the phases of sleeping. When it happens during rapid eye movement, the stage during which we dream, it is caused by a motor breakthrough of dream speech. Our mouth and vocal cords are usually inactive when we sleep.
