Xenophobia is the fear of strangers, foreigners or aliens. --------------------------------------------------------------------- Xeno = strangers, foreigners and aliens (more in the sense of people who are strangers, aliens... and probably not so much as "aliens" from ufo's... though for la…ck of better term, we still use the term xenophobia to indicate the fear of aliens) Baara = From the Hebrew - brutish, one of the wives of Shaharaim a Benjamite Baara = From the Hebrew - brutish, an Israelitish woman chuter = is the French verb "To Fall" As you can see, the fake word "baaraparchuter" was fabricated by the last person(s) that updated this answer and therefore does NOT exist!!! NOR means "fear of extra-terrestrials, the dead" ( Necrophobia is the fear of death and fear of the dead).

If you want to know if a word is real, just look at the word's etymology (root language of a word) and you'll find your answer. (MORE)
