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

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.

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

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!

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.

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".
