If it hurts, the dream probably alludes to the fact that you have been speaking badly of someone or telling lies. For Freud, the tongue had a clear sexual meaning. Because of its shape and erotic function, he compared it to the penis. (See mouth ) if the tongue you dream about is your own, it means that you will tell lies. If it’s someone else’s, others will lie about you. To dream that you don’t have a tongue denotes the inability to defend yourself against slander.
