The narrative structure of dream narratives is assumed to follow a fixed hierarchicalorder that reflects the temporal sequence of the original dream event. This corpus based study aims to assess the latent linguistic structure and function of the salientlinguistic features that span the unit boundaries of orally elicited dream narratives (N= 39). A hierarchical cluster analysis indicates that the content of orally elicited dreamnarratives is based on five linguistic clusters, including 1) spoken discourse style, 2)level of detail, 3) self- and other references, 4) reasoning processes, and 5) spatial andmotion processes. The results are analysed in an exploration of the discursive functionof the linguistic clusters within the dream narratives.
