Talking in your sleep is a natural thing, lots of people do it. My husband never did dream or talk in his sleep, until he was put on medication to make him go into REM. Maybe this is what happens when some people go into REM. : D
Its not always stress. My brother has been talking in his sleep since he was a small child. His wife says he still does. My husband talks in his sleep. Its a side effect of his BP med. This new medication is the only one that controls his blood pressure, so I live with waking up every night.

my brother did it since he was 9-ish so it can't be stress, it must be something that some people do
it could well be something to do with imagination/fantasy whilst dreaming - say this as studies show 50% of children talk in their sleep, but only 5% of adults - and it is obvious children age better at imagination.
