Do you mouth words or speak out loud?

I have read that many people do this. When I'm alone I always sort of whisper what my characters are saying. So, I'm just curious... How many of you do this?

I do this when i'm alone. But when i'm in public places, sometimes i do face expressions. lol

i whisper or mouth the words my characters are saying, but if i'm listening to music while daydreaming, i'll mouth the words of the song i'm listening to instead. it's weird. if i'm daydreaming in public, i'll try not to mouth the words my characters are saying, but sometimes i find myself doing it.

Sometimes I mouth words, sometimes I whisper them. I think I whisper them more often though.

I do this as well, but didn't know it until I got a pet. Whenever I'm daydreaming at home, I'll be sitting on the couch with my ipod playing and completely zone out. I began to notice that while I was daydreaming, my cat would suddenly be startled for seemingly no reason. Eventually, I put two and two together and figured out that I was verbalizing my daydreams dialog at random intervals, effectively scaring my kitty. :-(

All my dreams are realistic, like a story, or a movie running through my mind. I usually take on one of the characters, and when I am by myself at home (which is rare) I pace through the house and I do talk to my characters as if they were standing right there. I sometimes talk to my characters when I am in my car sitting in the parking lot before work. I'm ALWAYS looking around to make sure no one is looking. It seems like I can never leave my daydreams. I go from one story to another (I have several books in my head) I usually stay on one story for awhile and then move on to another. I had one "storyline" going on and then all of a sudden it took on a new direction and I didn't even see that coming. I find myself wanting to lay in bed and keep on dreaming. I try so hard so that my husband doesn't know. I love him with all my heart, but I don't think it would ever understand that I dream about other people...........not that I am in love with other people, but I know you all understand what I'm talking about. I also do the facial expressions too. My only fear..........I'll call out a different name during our moments of passion (if you know what I mean).

i pretty much 90% of the time speak out loud, but i never ever do this infront of people (unless ive been caught). i sometimes catch myself smiling or pulling a facial expression on like buses or if im walking somewhere but i dont think this happens as much as it used to. when i was younger id speak outloud and mouth words anywhere, but now its completely private! so i think anyway, im sure my family hear me occasionall, awkward.

If I'm alone, I'll talk out loud to my characters....if there are others present, then I just imagine the words I say to them. My kids have caught me smiling or making facial gestures, then I have to come up with some quick explanation on why I'm smiling or laughing...or why I look depressed, etc.

Yes, I do this.  I get so involved in my thoughts that I make facial expressions and even say words out loud.  Not a whole sentence or conversation but maybe one word or phrase. One example is "watch out!"  I said that out loud accidentally at a tram stop.  I was imagining a whole story that was triggered by an idea that I had while watching people walk around with umbrellas.  I wondered what would happen if you accidentally poked a stranger with one of the points that stick out. I imagined the whole scenario.  (It seems common, I poke my husband in the face all the time while walking with an umbrella.  He tries to stay a few feet away because I'm dangerous...:-)

I once in a while will let random words slip out.  It happens all the time when I'm at home.  Whenever I start to remember something uncomfortable, I instantly change the subject by saying aloud "I love cats."  It's gotten to the point where I don't even realize I'm doing it anymore.  At least I'm alone when I do that.  What's really embarrassing is that I make facial expressions in public when I'm daydreaming.  People notice, too.

Yes, sometimes I do this accidentally in the presence of others.  Sometimes I will when I am alone, in my car or bedroom
