It baffles and infuriates me that Hogwarts students don’t take Latin or Greek. Accio? Literally “I summon.” Lumos? Fucking “light.” Expelliarmus? Expel weapon!! Ooooh I wonder what Levicorpus does– you Dumb Ass Bastard. You ILLITERATE. It’s called Levicorpus, it lifts someone’s body, it LEVIES your goddamn CORPUS-

I always wondered why more students didn’t try to invent more spells by smashing together Latin words and waving their wands around. Just hordes of teenage boys shouting “MAGNECOLES!” in the dormitories every night.

the spell is in the intent, not the words themselves. the words are just tools to help you focus on what it is you want to accomplish.

I assure you that the intent is absolutely there.
