Halloween is just around the corner and what better way to celebrate it here on Word of the Day then by looking at "scary" words. From all manner of ghost, goblins, demons and other creatures that go bump in the night. I will bring you the words that best describe them. So get out you flashlights, duck underneath those covers and pray that the boogieman passes you by. Our first word will be eidolon, so let's see what Dictionary.com has to say.
Eidolon \ahy-DOH-luhn\, noun;
1. phantom; apparition
2. An ideal
If you can summon up the courage to get out from underneath the covers than make sure to tell all your friends what an eidolon is. And if you are brave enough please leave us something down below. Thank you.
