Does anybody know a word I can use for "fire" or perhaps "flames" or something to that effect? I'd appreciate some help, as I need to invent some kind of charm that causes a fire (mild fire). Thanks in advance.
Wow, I've been neglecting this thread, haven't I...
I seem to have misplaced my Latin dictionary, so for the moment, the only think I can help with is Moony's question.
Face is facie (pronounced fachie or fatsie depending on which whether it's Italian or German latin).
Had this been Italian, I would have suggested Facie del Mortis, but since it's not I'm a bit uncertain about what word to put inbetween. Facie de mortis, Facie di mortis... Di sounds logical, but like I said, I cannot be certain. I shall return once my dictionary decides to peak out its head again.
I need the Latin translation for "flood of water" or something close to it. Hopefully, it should be short (because it's a non-verbal spell). Two words maximum.
I'm asking this again - does anyone know the Latin translation for unrequited love? I've tried to look "unrequited" up at a few sites - but so far, nothing has helped.
Thanks in advance,
Dumbledore Prince: I looked up both of those for you:
1. Eluvies means flood and aqua means water. Maybe you could combine those two together to provide yourself with a quick non-verbal incantation? Like you said...
2. 'Love' is amor. 'Unrequited' means unanswered/unreciprocated, or is synonomous with it, and 'answer' in these senses can be either:
- referri - to reproduce, reciprocate (best bet)
- refero - to answer
So, with that, you could whip up something. Since the translations I provided do not mean 'unrequited', make sure you add the un- or non- prefix.
Will this, too, be a nonverbal incantation, or not? Hopefully, this doesn't turn out to be a duelling spell/charm/jinx, etc, or anything because it looks kind of long. But maybe I'm wrong.
Hope it helped!
Could I please have the translations for 'combine' and 'mass/ large amounts'? By the last one, I meant that for example, I want a spell that will transport large amounts of people to another place, so I pretty much need a spell for 'mass transportation'...Hope that made sense...Anyway, thanks in advance!
Lily_greeneyes: I looked that up also!
- globus - a troop, crowd, of people (best bet)
- vulgus - a crowd, mainly referring to the public
Now, for transportation, I think it would be safe to use the 'Portus' incantation for the Portkeys. So, combining that, it would be easy to say because all three words have the -us suffix, only using two words is what I meant, not all three...haha. And, if it was me, I wouldn't trying combining two words together because it would take away the gorgeous effect of Latin! LOL.
When I meant that I wanted the word for 'combine', I didn't mean that I wanted to combine the two words together with another word....Whoops, sorry, I should have clarfied that... I just wanted the word for 'combine' or 'combining' because I want to make this spell called the 'Combinig Charm' that combines or binds two spells together to make one strong spell...So yeah, could I please have the word for that?
Lily_greeneyes: Oh, I totally overlooked that. The last thing you explained, about the transporting a group of people, is what I provided. I don't know what I read, but that's what came out! LOL. You can use 'combine' in two ways, whichever way you like:
- conligo - bring, keep together
- tempero - combine, blend
Yes, you are absolutely right. I discussed it with my "Latin teacher" (aka, my mother) and that is absolutely correct. I was way off... Then again, grammar never was my strong side in any language except English.

Castle of Snakes
I am looking for a latin translation for the name of a castle in my fic. I would like it to be along the lines of :
The Castle of Snakes or Snake Castle, or something similar to that.
Thanks to anyone who can help.
