    Esoteric, Esoterica, Esotericism

    I am not an English instructor and am struggling with the proper use of the following -esoteric, esoterica, esotericism. Would I be correct in using "esoteric" exclusively as an adjective and the other two as nouns? (In addition, esoterica and esotericism appear underlined in red as I type them here - why?)

    Welcome to the forum, Donnie.

    Yes, esoteric is an adjective and the other two are nouns.

    Your spellcheck probably underlined them because they are rarely used and therefore not in its database.
