    Most People think that the unknown tongues is speaking in tongues. but this is so untrue, speaking in tongues is hear your tongues that is spoke by a person that can't speak you tongues.
    notice and understand what scripture states: Acts 2: 1 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.

    2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.

    3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.

    4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

    The Holy Ghost gave them utterance, and they began to speak with other tongues and every man heard them speak in his own language. Now there was about 16 to 19 difference language and only 11 disciples and John 2:8 And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born?

    5 And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven.

    6 Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language.

      Seems like you answered your own OP:
      Each heard them speak in THEIR OWN LANGUAGE (tongue).

    i don't fully understand what you are saying...
    but i have thought on this recently...due to this article i stumbled upon: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glossolalia
    THEN, i thought about my past growing up in a fundamentalist church.
    it was typical for people to speak in tongues at my church, considered a gift "everyone" was given when filled with the holy ghost.

    i honestly believe that, because it is in the bible and others see this happening in their church that it is easy to let go, have a spiritual experience and have it manifest this way.

    just as those who have spiritual experiences *always* have them with the religious figures they are accustomed to, even if they are not practicing any religion. we are all capable of letting go and having amazing things happen to our bodies (and through our bodies) as we let "the spirit" or various spirits or even personal energies flow through us.

    sadly, i choose to believe that this is somewhat magical/mystical and letting go into a deep spiritual experience that i'm surprised is not viewed as witchcraft by every bough, branch and leaf of any christian church...

    as a "magical" person myself (and having been intensely religious in the past) i can say from experience that speaking in tongues is very TYPICAL of magick  and whatnot and very (other than the act of speaking in tongues in church) demonic behavior, actually, as far as the church is concerned.

    then again, so is their worship practices and their holidays.

    LOL!

    Personally, I think speaking in tongues goes both ways -- speaking and hearing.  I say this out of experience:

    More than once, I have been in a store and heard a group (2-6) of people who are obviously looking for something.  They are asking each other where would be good to look.  Meanwhile, clerks ignore them.  So, I have answered them myself. 

    When I have answered them, I have noticed very strange looks from other shoppers, and thought they thought I was rude for butting into someone's conversation.  Later though, the people I spoke to have come back to me, obviously very happy and talking in a language I did not understand or speak.

    When tired, I can read multiple languages that I have never studied without ever realizing it is not in English.  This leads me to think that language is not as big of a barrier as I have been taught it is.  I think it is something our conscious mind recognizes, while our subconscious understands much much more.

            I am not sure what you are getting at.

            I have read the Bible, and the only thing I remember on testing it was that it be interpreted.  The fact that those I was speaking to understood me and that those around me who spoke English did not, would be proof. 

            As far as duplicating it, I can not understand or speak in languages I do not know just because I decide/want to.
