An incantation or enchantment was a charm or spell created using words. An incantation may take place during a ritual, either a hymn or prayer, and may invoke or praise a deity. In magic, occultism, and witchcraft it was used with the intention of casting a spell on an object or a person and may employ the use of pharmakeia. The term derives from Latin "incantare" (tr.), meaning "to chant (a magical spell) upon," from in- "into, upon" and cantare "to sing".

In medieval folklore and fairy tales, enchantments were charms or spells. The term was loaned into English since around 1300 AD 1300. The corresponding native English term being "galdor" "song, spell". It has led to the terms "enchanter" and "enchantress", for those who use enchantments.

History

"Davy Jones...we, the Pirate Lords of the Brethren Court, call you. By our alliance giving us power over the sea, binding the queen in her bones, we entreat you. Come to us, Davy Jones. We summon you. We summon you. We summon you."
Eduardo Villanueva, Ching, Edward Teague, and Rafael[src]

When the infamous pirate Left-Foot Louis obtained the Sword of Cortés, he discovered that he needs to speak the magical incantation that would unlock the full power of the legendary blade. The incantation was written on the piece of paper in possession of a man he killed some time earlier, Francois, so he had to find his corpse. Louis and his men invaded Isla Fortuna, and excavated Francois' corpse from the local graveyard, but they were attacked and defeated by the young adventurer Jack Sparrow and his crew. Jack and his friends found the paper inside Francois' coat, but since the incantation was written in Latin, they couldn't understand a single word. Nonetheless, they read the inscription, and accidentally summoned the spirit of the Sword's first owner, the infamous conquistador Hernán Cortés.
