Feel free to make up your own words, it seems like some researchers in the paranormal field make up their own too and people do use them, but you won't find them in any dictionary.

Ad ridiculum (Latin: "delusion to the ridiculous") - my fallacy is better than your fallacy, fallacy

A N A L - (acronym for excessive scientific attention to detail)
Assumption
No
Apparitions
Likely

A Boniface - a pub landlord who tells everyone his establishment is haunted to get people into his pub.

Flesh Bias (exists) - Depriving all your physical senses of external stimuli to tap into the transcendental ego, and thats why ghost hunters do it in the dark.

Fluffery - 'a gullibility trap' fake articles written by ultra-skeptics both academic and none-academic for people willing to believe or trust too readily, esp. without proper or adequate evidence, also used in catching out fake mediums who research the internet.

Orbs (don't exist) - Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus poop (exists)

A Pareidoholic - (pareidolia exists) a disorder characterized by compulsive and uncontrolled persistence of seeing ghosts everywhere.

Scientimythicalists - a scientific paranormal group 'woo' believe in ghosts and spirits.

The Thatsaloadable Effect - to define how some persons who are confronted with evidence that clashes with their belief system come to hold their original position even more strongly

Xenonormal - (a word that originated on the ASSAP website) something that appears to be of paranormal origin, eg. a sight, sound or a smell, but is most likely to be the cat taking a dump and you haven't realized or some other naturally occurring incident that no one can figure out.

Zooludicrous - When a pet owner says, 'The cat and dog saw the ghost too' ???

In this case, EMF stands for "Emitted Methane Fragrance."

Paratrinket (word exists but item has no special powers only in the users mind) - An object or item that you can buy that is said to be haunted or has special supernatural powers. Eg. Crystals, wands, chakra jewellery, haunted dolls, ghost in a jar, emulats, aura goggles, magic water (great for cystitis), magic mushrooms (great for OBE's) poisonous mushrooms (great for NDE's)
