Perhaps, You can Dream in Another Language

To dream is to think
To dream is to imagine
But how does one think?
But how does one dream?
How does one think without a language to anchor one’s thought?
How does one dream without a language to dream in?
Does thought precede language?
Does language precede thought?

With questions like this
you are clean bowled
or stumped unawares
or plumb lbwed
philosophers are perplexed
linguists are tongue-tied.


If you are lucky to be a bilingual
or a multilingual
Perhaps you can dream in another language!
