    Angels, spirits.....

    Hi.

    I recognize that this is quite an unusual question, but I would appreciate your help to identify an English word that I learnt some years ago and now I am unable to remember.

    I think it is slang or colloquial, and refers to angels, spirits, souls, small demons.... I am not sure.

    Eddies, Edies, Idies......or something like this?

    Thanks for your help in any case.

    No, neither of them. I must be wrong.

    No, that means we're wrong. I will keep thinking.

    Re: Angels, spirits.....

    Perhaps you mean entities, preceded by an adjective like 'supernatural' or 'paranormal'.

    Re: Angels, spirits.....

    Do remember anything about the context?

    No, no context at all.

    I think it was British slang.

    Just forget it. I'll look for it someway and come back to tell you.

    Thanks.
