Ouija

Definition of Ouija

The word ouija is actually two words combined, the French and German words for yes, ‘oui,’ and ‘ja.’ Ouija is associated with the ouija board. This board has letters and numbers on it and those who consult the ouija board use either a planchette or a dowsing pendulum to spell out the spirit-guided answers to their questions. There is some disagreement as to whether the use of ouija boards is safe or not. They should never be used as a toy.
