The definition of word "ghost":
||1. soul or spectre of a dead person, usually believed to inhabit the netherworld and to be capable of returning in some form to the world of the living. According to descriptions or depictions provided by believers, a ghost may appear as a living being or as a nebulous likeness of the deceased and, occasionally, in other forms. Belief in ghosts is based on the ancient notion that a human spirit is separable from the body and may maintain its existence after the body's death. In many societies funeral rituals are believed to prevent the ghost from haunting the living. A place that is haunted is thought to be associated by the haunting spirit with some strong emotion of the pastremorse, fear or the terror of a violent death. Individuals who are haunted are believed to be responsible for or associated with, the ghost's unhappy past experience (compare possession, spirit). The traditional visual manifestations of haunting include ghostly apparitions, the displacement of objects or the appearance of strange lights; auditory signs include disembodied laughter and screams, footsteps, ringing bells and the spontaneous emanation of sounds from musical instruments. Tales of specific ghosts are still common in living folklore worldwide. The telling of elaborate, grisly ghost stories, often in a setting enhanced by darkness or thunderstorm, is a popular pastime in many groups, particularly among children.

||8. Nineteenth-century Native American cult. It represented an attempt by Indian peoples in the western United States to rehabilitate their traditional cultures. The Ghost Dance arose in 1889, when the Paiute prophet-dreamer Wovoka announced the imminent return of the dead (hence "ghost"), the ousting of the whites and the restoration of Indian lands, food supplies and way of life, all of which would be hastened by dances and songs revealed in Wovoka's spiritual visions. The Ghost Dance spread rapidly. It coincided with the Sioux outbreak of 1890, which culminated in the massacre at Wounded Knee, where the "ghost shirts" failed to protect the wearers as promised by Wovoka. The cult soon became obsolete.
||9. Holy Ghost or Paraclete; In Christianity, the third person of the Holy Trinity. Though references to the spirit of Yahweh (God) abound in the Old Testament, Christian teaching about the Holy Spirit is derived mainly from the Gospels. The Holy Spirit descended on Jesus at his baptism and outpourings of the Spirit are mentioned in the Acts of the Apostles, in which healing, prophecy, exorcism and speaking in tongues are associated with its activity. The Holy Spirit also came to the disciples during Pentecost. The definition of the Holy Spirit as a divine person equal in substance to the Father and the Son was made at the Council of Constantinople (AD 381).
||10. Soul or specter of a deceased person. Belief in ghosts has been common since ancient times and is reflected in folklore around the world.

They are thought to be especially likely to haunt places or people connected with some strong emotion of their past life, such as fear, remorse, or the terror of a violent death.
