More evidence of the anecdotal kind, courtesy of my friend Mark
Shoulson <shoulsoncs.columbia.edu>, one of the most proficient Terran
Klingonists:

> Even dreamt in tlhH [Klingon. --ID] once or twice. Weirder still:
> when I woke up I could remember some of what was said... and it was
> grammatically correct. Happened to me with Welsh once as well.

> I've also dreamt in computer languages, but that was less clear.
> More like having C and Yacc snippets floating around my brain as
> I'm half-asleep.
