If a monk living in a monastery takes a vow of silence then talks in his sleep, has he broken his vow of silence?

No, because he was not conscious when he did, and wouldn't have realised that he slept-talked.

Falconwing's questions are always funny

I don't think he has, at least intentionally.

Hmmmm......I dont think he has broken his vow as it wasnt a voluntary action.

Would be funny though....

No, he didn't do it on purpose.

Hahahaha... this is too funny.
Yes, he has broken the vow of silence, but not intentionally, as people mentioned, so they should let it slide.

No more than a Muslim accidentally drinking alcohol that they didn't know was in a chocolate.

Unless he's fairly new to the vow of silence, I don't think he could talk in his sleep, assuming that if you don't use something, it wastes away. It's a bit like getting someone never to walk again, then expecting them to have the strength in their legs to sleep-walk.
