Ugh, I typed in "Expecto Petronum" instead of "Expecto Patronum". Could you make the spelling of that a little more lenient please?

This is pretty arbitrary. A basic knowledge of orthography can't hurt.

If it was just a film series then maybe spelling could be lenient. But they’re wildly popular books. So no excuse. And how hard is it to just experiment with different spellings of a word to see what works?

Priori incantatem should definitely be accepted. Also Confundus for confundo? If you take patronus for expecto patronum, it fits that you would take confundus for confundo.

No, it does not. Patrons refers to the silver being cast from the wand, but Confundus is not ever mentioned.

They refer to "the Confundus curse"

the spelling of the water jet spell is aguamente, not aguamenti. and to reveal the last spell cast, I believe you would say priori incantartem, not prior incantarto

Thank you for adding so many alternative spellings! The problem is, I think of the spell, then cannot even come remotely close to spelling it, haha

Nerd alert: for the silencing one "langlock" should also work. It causes one's tongue to affix to the roof of their mouth. I know it's really obscure, but maybe you can make it as an alternative of silencio? :)

Eek! This quiz was great, the only thing i was confused on, isn't Prior Icantatum the result when brother wands duel and Prior Incantato the spell that reveals the wands last spell. Correct e if I am wrong, but I was just wondering. Again, Overall, GREAT QUIZ!

There is another incantation which causes cleaning - "tergeo". this is used by Professor Slughorn in the sixth book. Also, "sectumsempra" also cuts objects.

Was I the only person who was disappointed with the lack of Imperio? You can't have two of the three Unforgivable Curses and not have the last one.

Wait.... Levi means levitate, and corpus means corpse, meaning the spell name literally translates to "levitating corpse"

Actually, "corpus" usually means "body".

Luna fixes Harry's glasses in the 6th book with the spell "perpisky" or something like that, which is what I thought of for the question about reparing things. Could this be added as an answer?

I couldn't spell aguimentai or petrificus totalus. And I probably spelled them wrong right now. But I'm really proud about getting prior incanteum!

Jul 17, 2018
This is an excellent quiz! I've only read the first two books and seen the first three movies, so I got all the spells I knew and other common spells, like Avada Kedavra. Of course, you could add a few more spells, like riddikulus, imperio, and sectumsempre, but those are just suggestions.

Harry Potter himself only got one point on this quiz, because he kept putting in "Expelliarmus."

Maybe you should make it clear that you are looking for the incantation? Many of these spells are given other names such as "the Patronus charm", "the Cruciatus curse" and "the killing curse".

Damn, I only missed Scourgify, because in my mother tongue it's simply translated to the equivalent of "Scourge!". If Tergeo was accepted I would have gotten it though.
