[Homework]2015-08-03 How to Use a Word

Today's word is doppelganger, spelled D-O-P-P-E-L-G-A-N-G-E-R. There is an umlaut or double dot over the ''a'' in doubelganger. Doubelganger is a noun that means a ghostly counterpart of a living person. It can also mean a person who closely resembles another living person, or the opposite side of a personality, an altered ego. Doppelganger also means a person who has the same name as another.

Here's the word used in a sentence.

According to **, all living creatures have a spirit double who is invisible but identicle to the living individual. These second selves are ** being distinct from ghost which appeal only after death, and sometimes they're discribed as the spiritual opposite or negative of their human counterparts. In 1769, German writer Johann Paul Richter, who wrote under the pseudonym Jean Paul, coined the word ''doppelganger'' from ''doppel'', meaning ''double'' and ''ganger'', meaning ''goer'' to refer to such spectors.
