I forwarded the message from Esther Kuntjara concerning hypnotism and
language to my brother who recently watched a hypnotist asking if the
person did anything specifically with language. Below is the original
posting
followed by my brother's reply. It doesn't answer the question as much as
it poses a new one, but I thought it may be of interest.

On another occasion, while I was watching a live hypnotic show in English, I
was wondering if a non-tive speaker of English would be able to respond
the same way as other native speakers of English when they were under
unconcious state. Anybody has this experience?

Yes. He had people spell the last word of everything they said (for emphasis),
 but spell it wrong. Then someone else would get annoyed with them
 and say "you're so stupid, it's spelled a b c", but they, too, would
spell it wrong.

 Amazingly, people even made up letters of the alphabet!

just to prove how much sense i make when i dream about language, last 
night i dreamed that i was pointing out to a friend that part of a 
certain hebrew word was simply a transliteration of an english word. 
and to show him, i traced the letters - from left to right!

Re language in dreams, I dream in English and Javanese. I'm a native
speaker of the former but lived in Java for eighteen years and brought up
my children in that language. When I lived there I spoke Javanese to my
children in my dreams (as they did to me) just as we did when awake and
I spoke English to expats, also as I did when awake.
