Some Halloween Words Posted by on Oct 23, 2009 in Esperanto Language

The end of October approaches, and so too does Halloween! As your talk turns to topics of ghouls and ghosts, you might want to have some Esperanto words up your sleeve to dazzle your friends. Here’s a list of some of the more common Halloween frights you could encounter at the close of the month…Hopefully as nothing worse than a costume! As always, additions and suggestions are more than welcome.

Vampire – vampiro
Ghost – fantomo (also, “fantomi” means “to haunt”)
Werewolf – homlupo (think of Old English – “were” means “man”)
Curse – malbeno (noun of “malbeni“)
Zombie – zombio
Grave/Tomb – tombo
Skeleton – ostaro (“-aro” de “ostoj“)
Witch – sorcxistino (Wizard = “sorcxisto“)
