Tongue tying curse
Tongue tied – gameplay trailer
Is he cursed to make Hagrid deaf? Is there something meaningful about the word “Mimblewimble” that makes him want to say it? There’s no way it’s a coincidence. I’d like to know what comes to mind when you hear the word ‘Mimblewimble.’
Instead, this is meant to indicate that Vernon was terrified of Hagrid because there was a huge person shouting at him (the word “boomed” indicates that Hagrid was speaking very loudly), frightening Vernon to the point where he couldn’t even speak properly. He just managed to mumble something while turning pale, as is typical of people who are afraid.
The faim – summer is a curse
The Tongue-Tying Curse (Mimble Wimble), also known as the Tongue-Tying Spell, binds the target’s tongue to prevent him or her from speaking about a particular subject. This element, like the Silencing Charm, prevents the victim from incanting, making it useful when dueling (though it could be overcome with more advanced magic). Curses and Counter-Curses is a book that discusses it.
Alastor Moody enacted curses to safeguard the Order of the Phoenix’s headquarters at 12 Grimmauld Place in 1997. This spell was one of the curses. When Albus Dumbledore died, the properties of the Fidelius Charm securing the house made Snape a Secret-Keeper, so it was strategically positioned to prevent Severus Snape from disclosing the area’s position to Lord Voldemort. “Hold him out and tie his tongue if he wanted to speak about the location,” the curse read. It’s unclear what would happen if Snape were to write down the location on paper, which would have also revealed the house’s location’s secret.

Pottermore spells: tongue-tying spell
Technically, it first aired on RD’s radio predecessor Son of Cliché several years ago. Despite this, Grant/Naylor and musical parodist Peter Brewis wrote the song.
A survivor may be forced to remain silent about what happened to him, or he may have discovered a secret that no one wants shared. He may be intimidated or bribed into lying, but this is untrustworthy. Some villains use sophisticated brainwashing or Laser-Guided Amnesia, but both of these methods are reversible. As a result, every now and then, a magically inclined villain will cast a curse on his victim, leaving him Tongue Tied.
He isn’t entirely silenced; the curse usually doesn’t preclude him from speaking or casting spells. The cursed person simply loses the ability to convey a specific piece of knowledge, such as “I’m not a frog, I’m a transformed prince!” or “I know where the villain’s lair is!” or “I’m doomed!” If he attempts to speak about this topic, he may be unable to speak at all, his words may come out as gibberish, or he may be magically compelled to say a cover story instead of the truth he so desperately wants to tell. In reality, a Baleful Polymorph curse often has this impact as a side effect, preventing the transformed character from seeking treatment for his condition.
Our last night – “tongue tied” (official video)
As of now, I would say that it is no longer “recently published” (over a month since release day). And it’s not like we don’t have enough banners to place at the top of this page!! Greetings! melon – 24 August 2007, 12:05 (UTC)
After some inept journaling, I came across a scholarly article titled “Harry Potter and the Looking-Glass.” Since I’m stuck in Germany right now, I’ll have to ask someone else to do it, but it has intergratable content about Rowling’s use of language, particularly how it’s conveyed through magic, and what this tells us about the works and how they compare to previous ones. There’s no way that there are others. (Kizor) 24 August 2007 at 21:01 (UTC)
I believe this is the article Kizor is referring to; it appears to be part of a larger Harry Potter conference. This may be exactly what we need! I’m not sure what else qualifies as “real-world significance.” GlassCobra, August 24, 2007, 23:16 (UTC)
Unless something has changed since my last visit (I haven’t been paying attention), this article is only for canonical spells, i.e. those that appear in the books. —Laogeodritt [ Contributor | Talk ] 2 September 2007 at 21:04 (UTC)
