Dreamspeak is the spoken language used concurrently with Dreamsign. It is the language spoken and signed by the Children of the Forest.

In the fandom, there are two versions of Dreamspeak: there's the cipher, which is fully released but is just a key of symbols that correspond to sounds, and there's also a fully developed language, which will be taught in Morgan's Dreamspeak class.

Averno Bible Description[]

The children of the forest have their own language that they use to communicate. It has its own alphabet, as well as a sign language that is used concurrently with the spoken language (sometimes you just don't want to talk in the forest). There is no direct translation of its name in English, but the closest equivalent would be Dreamspeak*. The first class of the Department of Dead Languages found Dreamspeak scrawled on the walls of the abandoned grain mill when they arrived. Over the course of the first semester, slowly but surely, the students began speaking It to each other. No one entirely understands how they know it, or how they learned it. Since then, Dreamspeak has echoed down the halls of the DDL as much as Latin or Greek.

*There is a school of thought that Dreamspeak is comprised of the ineffable quality of thought, dreams, whatever language the gods talk in, etc.
