Xenoglossy seems interesting, to just randomly know another language... I think something like (but not xenoglossy itself) could (possibly) be achieved through hypnosis, but I'm not entirely sure how, I have to do more research and see if learning through hypnosis is plausible/possible. Also I've actually been curious about this sort of thing for awhile, I just didn't know the word for it till you mentioned it, so thanks qualeshia3.

You're welcome. I think Xenoglossy is interesting and I wish I had it though, strangely.

If at the VERY LEAST, the Topic is darned interesting! Another cool Thread, Qualeshia-chwan.

There doesn't really seem to be any scientific grounding for xenoglossy, with its primary proponent (at least according to the subject's Wikipedia article) apparently being a parapsychologist. Looking through the example cases said to have been subjected to rigorous investigation given on the page, I have:

1. A girl in India who was able to sing in Bengali despite living her whole life in India.

2. A woman exhibiting multiple personality disorder who manifested a personality which spoke Bengali, a language she could conceivably have been exposed to and which was spoken proximal to her home.

3. Another woman exhibiting multiple personality disorder and which manifested a personality which spoke broken, extremely limited Swedish supported solely by the outlandish claim that only a native speaker of Swedish can correctly pronounce the Swedish word for "seven". Apparently this person's Swedish was so broken that the subject was unable to answer even basic questions with appropriate responses consistently and gave one or two word answers at best for any given question.

4. A woman who allegedly spontaneously exhibited a German personality under hypnosis which was later deemed to have an exceedingly limited vocabulary, frequently incorrect pronunciation, to give inappropriate responses to questions (answering with a combination of "bed" and "room" which doesn't actually exist in German in response to the question of what she had for breakfast), and known previous exposure to German language television and learning aids.

Even the Rosemary, Lucia, and Czech speedway rider cases given afterward are highly suspect. All told, there seems to be absolutely no concrete evidence for xenoglossy whatsoever given my rudimentary initial analysis of the subject. There is not a single convincing example on the entire Wikipedia page. Given that website's rate of editing and the scope of its editing community, that's a pretty bad sign.

I'll agree that xenoglossy is an interesting and fun idea, but I don't have anything which indicates to me that it is anything more than an idea.

These examples are okay with me for now. At least it's something interesting to research and ponder if such a thing is possible. It's more along the lines of paranormal from what I learned. Even still it is cool to want something that interesting to happen to me.

impossible because language is a "human-made thing". you can't just one day, learn a new language... how do you even get the pronunciation right? without living WITH people who speak that language? some language utilize stress, while others don't.
secondly, how can you get the context right? some languages have tenses and plurals while others don't have these. subject of sentences can change orders.
if they use slangs particularly to a region, how can you differentiate between that and normal words?


if you say to me, that the fastest someone can learn a language is 1 day, i'm more likely to believe that... because the human brain is incredible. but to learn a new language completely without any prior readings is IMPOSSIBLE.

Hmm it would be cool, If it was possible I'd want it, but I don't think it's possible to know something you haven't learned, especially something as complicated as a language.

But isn't randomly speaking in latin fluently a sign of demonic possession?
