Abode Definition from Social Science Dictionaries & Glossaries
Dream Dictionary
To dream that you can't find your abode, you will completely lose faith in the integrity of others.

If you have no abode in your dreams, you will be unfortunate in your affairs, and lose by speculation.

To change your abode, signifies hurried tidings and that hasty journeys will be made by you.

For a young woman to dream that she has left her abode, is significant of slander and falsehoods being perpetrated against her.

In law, a dwelling (also residence, abode) is a self-contained unit of accommodation used by one or more households as a home, such as a house, apartment, mobile home, houseboat or other 'substantial' structure. A dwelling typically includes nearby outbuildings, sheds etc. within the curtilage of the property, excluding any 'open fields beyond'. It has significance in relation to search and seizure, conveyancing of real property, burglary, trespass, and land use planning.
