Never experienced this myself.
It's not a blessing on tap!

my mother was devout christian, as a child i used to watch her eyes gloss over and she would become silent, then start jabbering in what sounded like garbled noises, it later turned out she was suffering from manic depression and possibly bi-polar as well, but the church she went to told her she was erm talking in tongues, god was talking through her...i did not believe it nor my father, he would say....god created the universe but cannot speak english, anyway she got diagnosed and was treated...the jabbering stopped.

mental illness i have and probably always will in one form or another.
nope !! non..nut..nah...
minty, succinctly put

gotta go, bed awaits, night all
Speaking in tongues is the probably the nearest thing to madness it has ever been my misfortune to witness.
I can speak Strine

Does that count?
I speak English, gibberish and rubbish.
Multilingual, I'm impressed!
I worked with a Trekkie who was fluent in Klingon, to the uninitiated that would sound like someone possessed.
Can't make sense in any of them oz! :o}
A minor drawback Boaty.
