GLOSSOLALIA

[glos-uh-ley-lee-uh, glaw-suh-]

noun

... Incomprehensible speech in an imaginary language, sometimes occurring in a trance state, an episode of religious ecstasy, or schizophrenia.

... Glossolalia or speaking in tongues, according to linguists, is the fluid vocalizing of speech-like syllables that lack any readily comprehended meaning, in some cases as part of religious practice in which it is believed to be a divine language unknown to the speaker.

... Glossolalia consists of strings of meaningless syllables made up of sounds taken from those familiar to the speaker and put together more or less haphazardly.

... Glossolalia is language-like because the speaker unconsciously wants it to be language-like. Yet in spite of superficial similarities, glossolalia fundamentally is not language.

😳

So, LOL according to the world's explanation of "tongues"... LOL...


Guess I need Prozac, a straitjacket and a padded room. 😂


HOLY GHOST HAVE YOUR WAY IN THIS WILLING VESSEL! 😊
