Dreams, the involuntary perceptions that occur in our minds during sleep, have been the topic of studies in many fields of research, including psychiatry, psychology, neurobiology, and religious studies. Their narrative content also links dreams to other forms of storytelling, with sharp distinctions (such as the focus on one's personal life and the typical personal perspective) but also interesting overlaps with genres such as orally transmitted folktales. We present a study on dreams aimed at the large-scale analysis of dreams using text analytics.
