Etymology[edit]

oneiro- +‎ -logy, historically from Latin oneirologia from Ancient Greek ὄνειρος (óneiros, dream)

Noun[edit]

oneirology (countable and uncountable, plural oneirologies)

  1. The study of dreams and their interpretation.

Usage notes[edit]

Oneirology should not be confused with sleep research, which studies sleep as neurophysiological phenomenon. Oneirology is more concerned with dreams as personal experience and their interpretation.
