The meaning of Language in dream | Dream interpretation

If you find yourself being talked to in a language you don’t understand or that doesn’t make sense, the dream may tell of your concerns about missing the point in regard to some element in your waking life.

If you are speaking in a new language, this suggest that you need to broaden your horizons. Perhaps you need to take on a new challenge or embark on a new adventure.

If an interpreter appears in your dream, this may suggest that you need to have something explained to you.

If you are doing the interpreting yourself, perhaps someone in your life is relying too heavily on you in social situations and this is placing too much responsibility on you.

If your speech is broken or you cannot get the words out in your dream, this reveals insecurity about your communication skills.

If code language is involved in your dream, try to remember the code signals and see if they have any relevance to your waking life. Finally, if you or a character in your dream says something totally out of character or unexpected, this may be giving rise to something you aren’t yet ready to say to yourself or to hear. For example, if your best friend tells you that you are going to fail your driving test, perhaps this indicates that your friend isn’t as supportive of you as you like to think they are. Alternatively, these surprising words may reflect your own self-doubt, or that old issues and negative voices from your past are coming back to haunt you.

The Element Encyclopedia | Theresa Cheung

1- Hearing foreign or strange language in dreams illustrates some kind of communication, either from within or from the Collective Unconscious. It has not yet become clcar enough for us to understand it.

2- As we become more open to possibilities, the various facets of our personality can achieve their own method of communication with us. This is often experienced in dreams as strange language, and often comes across as sleep-talking.

3- In Spiritualism, hearing language is communication by discar- natc beings.

Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary | Pamela Ball

If you dream of speaking a language you are learning, then your learning is becoming expedited. Also, if you dream of speaking the language of a field of study that is foreign to you, such as physics, rocket science, or Windows XP, then this demonstrates the intelligence and wisdom of your mind, and that you are realizing that you are connected to the one mind.

Islamic Dream Interpretation | Ibn Seerin


Overhearing or being spoken to in an unfamiliar language in a dream can symbolize anything we are having difficulty understanding in other parts of our life. Alternatively, another part of our mind might be trying to communicate something to us that we don’t quite understand.

If you had a dream in which you could not understand what people were saying to you, this suggests that you are feeling excluded from your social circle or family, and that everyone seems to be speaking the same language apart from you. Alternatively, your unconscious may be urging you to learn a new language or broaden your horizons in some way. If, in your dream, you were talking to others but they could not understand you, does your dream mirror your reallife inability to communicate with others or your feelings that you are not being listened to?...

According to dream-lore, friendly foreigners in dreams are symbols of good luck, but a person in your dream who is foreign or who speaks an unfamiliar language may represent a part of yourself that you do not fully understand or accept. You may be neglecting important feelings or talents, or the dream may be mirroring a sense of frustration caused by problems in communicating with someone in waking life. The latter is often the case when you dream of a letter that is illegible or written in a foreign language, although such a dream could also suggest frustration with not being able to solve some difficult issue in waking life.

Whilst hearing foreign or strange languages in a dream can suggest misunderstandings, it can also be symbolic of some kind of communication from within, something important that has not yet become clear enough for us to understand or put into words.

If you pay attention to the strange language, the next stage of understanding will follow. In spiritualism, hearing strange language is communication from discarnate beings.... The Element Encyclopedia

Islamic Dream Interpretation


One function of dreams is to bring aspects of our thinking or feeling, which may be ill defined, towards clarification. Foreign or strange language may therefore illustrate something which is being communi­cated to us from within, but is still not clear.

The uncon­scious, as in speaking in tongues—glossolalia—and of course in dreams, frequently moves towards clear awareness in stages.

The strange language is a halfway house, as is a dream.

If we bring focused attention to these, as explained in dream processing, the next step, clear verbal expression, can be reached. Speaking in language we are learning: the language is becoming habitual, making it possible to think in it. See speaking. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

The origin of the language, if known, may have import here.

For example, if your family originated in Italv and vou dream in Italian, this may be a subconscious desire to learn more about your heritage.

The letters in some languages, like the Norse and Germanic runes and certain Hebraic characters, have very specific symbolic values.

For more insight, peruse a book on the appropriate language at your local library, or ask someone who is familiar with the tongue (see Pictographs).

If the language is unrecognized, write it phonetically in your journal for future reference. This may he a past life memory, a spiritual message, or a type of glossolalia (speaking in tongues) that can be interpreted later.

This is a symbol of unconscious messages that are not yet decipherable or understood. This interpretation applies only to a language that you do not know or that was created out of the dream world.

If you know more than one language, then dreaming in different languages is a reflection of where you are in your life and what the language in question means for you from your past. Words are the basis of all thought and all reality. When words that you do not understand show up in a dream, the unconscious is deliberately masking some information by changing the rules. Use the context of the dream to assess the height of the stakes. This would apply both to the information that is being expressed by the unconscious and to the emotional meaning attached to your reaction to being unable to decipher any literal meaning.

If you recognize the language being spoken by virtue of sounds and cadences, then apply whatever associations you have with that culture to the dream interpretation.

If the language is made-up and you can remember any specific words, sounds, or phrases, use them in your process to see if you can draw any parallels with words you know. There may be a rhythmic or phonic connection to the nonsense words of your dream. Do not be afraid of being overly literal.

If someone else is speaking to you in the dream, then the message is coming from the deep unconscious.

If you are speaking the foreign tongue yourself, it may indicate that the new information is already integrated as part of you. More investigation will likely need to be done before you will be able to understand and utilize the information being presented.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams

Your dream and its symbols speak through the language of dream symbolism. Although that language shares similarities across dreamers, each dreamer’s subconscious mind speaks in its own personal “dialect” of dream symbolism. So in this book you’ll learn about the “standard” language of dream symbols (to the extent that there is a standard one), plus you’ll learn how to decipher your own subconscious mind’s personal symbol meanings (your personal “dialect”). The following three sections introduce the primary considerations about personal dream symbol translation to keep in mind as you explore the symbol descriptions in this book.

Personal Meaning
Because dream symbol meaning is subjective and personal to the dreamer, consider what the symbol means to you personally. To help yourself better understand its personal meaning, you could ask yourself:

  • What thoughts and feelings come up when I think of this thing?
  • How would I describe this thing to someone who has never seen it before? (See also TOOL: Caveman Explanation.)
  • How would I feel about this thing if I actually saw it in real life?
  • What would I say if someone asked for my impression of this thing?

A dream symbol’s meaning can be very specific to its context in the dream. So, think about how the symbol appeared in the dream and what that may convey about its meaning. For example, pay attention to:

  • Where was the object?
  • Was there anything unusual about its location or position?
  • What was it near or surrounded by (objects, people, etc.)?
  • What was its environment (indoor or outdoor, lighting, mood, weather, etc.)?
  • (If an inanimate object) What was happening to it?
  • (If a living being) What was it doing, how, where, and with whom?
  • How were the characters (including you) viewing or relating to it?
  • How did you feel about all of the above?
  • Look Beyond the Obvious

A dream symbol often represents something beyond its obvious meaning. A rose could represent a real-life rose, but it’s much more likely to represent something else more symbolic (such as a feeling, characteristic, or event). So look beyond your symbol’s literal meaning by asking yourself, “What else could this symbol mean?”

Let Intuition Be Your Guide

  • As you work toward understanding a dream symbol, the goal is for your intuition to recognize the symbol’s true meaning. The process of reaching that your subconscious mind to reveal the symbol’s meaning, and to give your intuition a chance to recognize the meaning when you see it.
  • Whether a particular meaning from this book or elsewhere in your mind is the true meaning of your dream symbol.

(For more on intuition as a dream interpretation tool, see Recognizing Dream Symbol Meaning.)

Take the Winding Path
“When you start down the path of exploring a particular dream symbol, be willing to persevere even if the path is a winding one. You may not always know which way to go, but your intuition will guide you if you pay attention to it.

Since your goal in symbol exploration is to intuitively recognize the symbol’s true meaning, it’s a good idea to give your mind a chance to encounter that meaning so your intuition can recognize it. Sometimes the true meaning simply comes forward within your consciousness and then your intuition confirms it. However, more often you’ll need to put in a little more effort to discover it. If the true meaning isn’t evident, you can use a technique that parades various possible meanings past your “inner intuitive eye,” giving it a chance to confirm the true one. The technique can be as simple as mentally listing the meanings you associate with the symbol or reading the symbol’s description in this book. You could also use a dream analysis tool that prompts your subconscious mind to reveal the meanings it associates with the symbol, such as TOOL: Caveman Explanation, or many others in the Dream Analysis Toolkit in the first book of this series, The Curious Dreamer’s Practical Guide to Dream Interpretation....

Even in everyday life, the way we hold and position our body, the inclination of chest and head, the movement of hands, are a means of com­munication.

The apparently intuitive information in some dreams, when investigated, can be traced to an unconscious insight into the language of the living body. We all have this ability to understand body language, but it seems to be some­thing which is inherited from past times before verbal lan­guage. It therefore remains a largely unconscious ability. In our dreams, however, it is a major factor in how the dream is structured.

If you cannot find a satisfying description below, imagine yourself making the movement or posture in the dream to see if you can define what the feeling quality is, or what you are saying non-verbally. It can often be of value to make the movement or take up the posture physically instead of in the imagination. By comparing the movement/posture with an­other one, it can help to clarify its quality.

Example: Marilyn was expenencing emotional pain con­nected with her impending divorce. Marilyn had dreamt of seeing a dinosaur standing in her path, devounng all who approached it. We explored it by having Marilyn find a body posture and movements which for her expressed the feeling of the dinosaur. In doing so Marilyn did not sense anger or aggression, but she did feel like a predator which always had to take to gain her own needs. This feeling immediately re­minded her of her family life as a child. She remembered when she was sent shopping as a very young child of three or four; as well as buying what she had been asked, she pur­chased some sweets for herself. When she arrived home she was treated as if she had done a terrible thing, and that was where she began to feel like a predator. It seemed to her as if her own needs were always gained at the expense of someone else.

‘With this awareness, she could now see that the dinosaur standing iti her path clearly related to her present situation. Bargaining to gain a realistic share of the house and property jointly owned by her husband and herself, felt to her as if she were gaining her needs at his expense, like a predator. That made her feel so awful, she was almost ready to allow her husband to take all, leaving her without house or money to start again. Her awareness of where the feelings arose from, and the unrealistic pan they played in her life, allowed her to relate to the situation with less pain and more wisdom’ (from Mind and Movement, Tony Crisp). ...
