'Word' Dreams anyone?

Has anyone else experienced 'word' dreams?
Where a specific word, phrase, name is repeated until it wakes you up?
I recently had a dream, where someone keeps saying and eventually yelling "RCS"! Now I had no idea what that even was. I immediately looked it up, Reaction Control System. Now why the heck would I be dreaming about that? I have no idea where it came from at all.

A couple of years ago it was name, one that I had never heard of. I tried to find it via google but never did find anything about it. In fact, when I woke up I was having a hard time pronouncing it, even though it was clear in my dream.

What is weird, is that I can't make out words that may be written somewhere in my dreams.

Last night I heard over and over, what sounded like 'Hidgeonville'. I woke up saying it and wondering where that was and why it was important. I figured it was some obscure place from a recent romance novel or something. I've been casually looking for some land in western NC lately, this afternoon I check out a map of something for sale and a see a place with a very similar name near Franklin, NC. It is really just a crossroads. There is a place with a similar name in central KY, a very small town. Any other places ring a bell?

I've had all sorts of dreams through my years, and some of them contained names or codes but I never made much of them. What I have learned over the years is that my dreams tend to deal with daily experiences of the day directly before falling asleep, or with things I may have been neglecting or currently dealing with and that I have been pondering about.

So I tend to take them seriously but not 100% of the time, dreams pertain to the dreamer and the RCS might mean something specific to you, or it might be connected to something you read or saw during your waking state that translated to your dreams as you processed things through.

A good practice might be to keep a dream journal so as to recognize patterns and not miss things out entirely.

Yes, this happens often for me. I will focus on the puzzle of the day, and “give it to my subconscious” for resolution or a hint.
I follow up on the words or phrases, and generally get one of those ah ha moments. I have practiced eliminating “mind chatter” so, the noise /static ratio is kept minimal. It really depends on knowing what you were thinking, asking, before you went to sleep. At least, that’s what I have found.

Yeah, hard to figure that one out, unless you can narrow down what you were pondering, or what issues were happening, before you drifted off.

Easy one to answer, at least, from the information and tests and experiments that I have studied in neuroscience.

Our language areas of our consciousness brain are relatively shut down during sleep, and unless the writing is generated or beamed from your subconscious, you won’t be able to make sense of written script.
Years ago, when lucid dreaming was a study in my energy psychology group, we learned to write something on a piece of paper, like a sentence or phrase, and while lucid dreaming, it was a “cue” to alert oneself to the fact that we were lucid, and dreaming, if we saw the paper, but couldn’t read what was written.
Hope that makes sense!

yes, I have experienced occasionally in the past. Last week, I woke up with some word, but forgot immediately. As Alejo mentioned, I should have written down to see the pattern and message. Sometimes, other clues has to fall in place to make sense. But, when clues fall in place, message is still relevant to the time of dream.

I also had one(can't remember if that has happened before) in 17.3.21, which I wrote down. It happened as I was just about to fall asleep,
the word 'kauila' appeared. Shortly after that I woke up, because I had to go to bathroom.

So I looked what that word is about. It seems to be connnected to Hawaii: kauila — Wehe²wiki²

Related buckthorn family, if I got it right, may have something to do with 'tyrni' berry, that appears/grows in some places here in Finland.

But there you go, so many other possible associations also.

In my dream last night, my husband came to me with a piece of paper with numbers written on it, like a tabulation of amounts. He had just checked us out of a motel, the clerk had given him an envelope full of cash, and the piece of paper as his receipt. We both tried to read the numbers, but it was blurry. I didn't have my reading glasses with me, and we couldn't see if the numbers were correct. Finally I just told him to count the money and make sure it was correct. So this one, no words, but numbers.

Thank you LadyRodgers and everyone for sharing
About a month ago I had a dream with a word like you said, it's funny how you can remember and keep in your memory of that word.
This dream seems to be a bit fantastical, quite specific imaginings, LOL.

In my dream I was with another person and we were talking about something I don't remember, I was holding a full face mask that looked like it was made of gold, it was a bit flat, only the nose part and a little bit of the facial features stood out, but at the ends it was flat, it also had some perforated circles at the ends, while I was observing this mask over my hands, the word Mecca (I mean the sound of that word, in the dream I don't remember exactly how it was written, but I remember the sound very well).

When I woke up in the morning, I searched the internet and it appeared as:
Mecca, officially Makkah al-Mukarramah (Arabic: مكة المكرمة‎, romanized: Makkat al-Mukarramah, lit. 'Makkah the Noble' Hejazi pronunciation: [makːa almʊkarːama]) and commonly shortened to Makkah (Arabic: مكة‎, romanized: Makkah Hejazi pronunciation: [makːa]),[a] is a city and administrative center of the Mecca Province of Saudi Arabia, and the holiest city in Islam.[2]
