Hi, there! Been a while.
This particular piece of nonfa all started when a friend of mine randomly asked what Harry Potter spells would sound like in Twi. I’m sure there was something that led to it, but I just can’t seem to remember what that something was.
Either way, it all led up to a number of speculations and suggestions, and before we knew it, my friends and I were wasting our lives during a free period writing translations of spells on the board.
In case this is a a bit difficult to see:
Imperio: y3 nea me ka [do what I say]
Protego: m3nfa wonsa nka me [don’t touch me]
Langlock: m3nkasa [don’t talk]
Incendio: agya [fire]
Crucio: agyei (we really blasted with this one.) [ouch]
Finite Incantum: gyae saa [stop that]
Wingardium Leviosa: s)rek) [get up and go]
Lumos: s) kanea [turn the light on]
Knox: dum kanea [turn the light off]
Alohomora: bie 3pono [open the door]
Accio: bra ha [come here]
Avada Kedavra: m’aku wo. [I have killed you]
And indeed, I hope to have Avada Kedavra’d a lot of people with this insane blog post.
