SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

apparition (noun) ghost or spirit.

Some people believe in the occasional reappearance of the forms of the dead, absent, or disappeared persons. They claim they see, now and then, the images of the dead. Such images are apparitions. Apparitions are just images, and lack substance. They are supposed to be only figures without flesh and blood, and usually believed to appear for short periods.

  • The old man often says that though he has lived for eighty-six long years, he has not seen an apparition. He dismisses apparitions as nonsense.
  • Most psychologists think that apparitions which some people claim to have seen are the products of their agitated minds and imaginations.
