Dream (wish)

Postby SARDORBEK » Fri May 25, 2012 5:20 am

(a) I often dream of being rich.
(b) I often dream about being rich.

1) Which one is correct?
2) If both possible, which one is more often used in everyday English?

Both possible, although the first is more likely to indicate a daydream.

For a sleeping dream, 'about' is more common.
