This word even made it into print as a synonym for marijuana in a 1931 TIME article. • This made readers of the Harry Potter books curious. They wondered whether the reason J. K.

  11. 11. 8. • In the 1980s, there was an attempt to make a wizarding __________ _______. But it was shut down soon after its conception by the British Ministry of Magic. The reasoning behind this was that random visuals could accidentally be picked up by the Muggle world, causing severe breaches to the Statute of Secrecy. Some wizards felt that the Ministry’s explanation didn’t make sense, as the wizarding world already used a similar entity that could randomly be picked up by their Muggle equivalents. To this, the Ministry argued that Muggles are very likely to dismiss sounds as their mind simply playing tricks on them, but if they saw visuals, they’d get suspicious and want to investigate. • Put funda.
  12. 12. 9.* • ____ ______ was invented by Ignatia Wildsmith in the thirteenth century. Its manufacture is strictly controlled.

It is a portmanteau of two words; ____ meaning strange or foreign, and ______, meaning ‘love of’. Hence the name X literally means ‘one who loves, or is drawn to strange and unfamiliar things. Who is X?
