Do you sleep talk?

One night before I got to sleep, my father told me that I was so noisy the other night. I was alarmed. He said that I was like preaching and like talking to someone on the phone. I dont know what to feel and how to react. I want to laugh because it's funny; I want to hide my face because it was so embarassing; and I want to ask him what I was saying that previous night. Lately, I have been in a difficult time, and I think my subconscious mind cant get over with it that I tend to express my sentiments even when i'm asleep. It's a bit alarming because I dont want anybody to know what I am feeling or experiencing now. Not yet. Not this time. Although, I sleep talk, I still consider myself as sound and silent. Not in my roommates case though. Do you sleep talk yourself? FYI: Sleep talking is termed as somniloquy. :)

This had happened a couple of times in my life. And I probably still do it. I think most of the years talking in my sleep was when I was under the age of ten. My mom and one of my aunts are known for sleep talking. And I've overheard their conversations before. They were pretty funny because they were about nothing.

hahaha... i have this friend who is so stressed and very tired from worked that every night she always talked to someone over the fone,she worked in a call center,but the worst she is sleeping and she always talk as if she is still in her work place,sometimes if you really think of the things that you had done before you sleep you will encounter this,and maybe because she is really tired and need to be relaxed that's why she sleep talk...

I have talked in my sleep in the past. But this happens under a couple circumstances. One I a overly tired, and something really intrested me or I was very upset with someone. Then I babble and can actually have a full blownen conversation. And yes this bothers me because you never know what you said, and more importantly who heard what you said.

Haha.. It has happened to me too. I sleep alone so even if I do sleep talk, I wouldn't have known. When I was traveling in Japan with my friend, she told me that at night, I tend to talk to myself. It wasn't loud talking. In fact, it was more of a murmur. Once, she caught me saying 'Ici ni' to myself. 'Ici ni' means '1 2' in Japanese. I guess I said 'Ici ni san' (1 2 3) too much during the day when I was taking pictures for my friends.
