Dream (while sleeping)

Postby SARDORBEK » Fri May 25, 2012 5:18 am

Hello, ALAN!

(a) I dreamt about you last night when I was asleep.
(b) I dreamt of you last night when I was asleep.

Instead of “about’ can we use “of” when we are asleep?

Not in vain am I asking this question: In “Practical English Usage” by M.Swan
the following is given:

dream about/of (while asleep)

What does it mean if you dream about/of mountains?

I have not seen this grammar point anywhere so far but “Practical English Usage”.

I need YOUR help….

Yes, either is possible with no difference in meaning.
