By means of this minor curse you causes the subject to be able only to speak in non-sense. The subject will believe that they are speaking normally and will not initially understand why no one understands them. The affected subject will not be able to communicate either by speech or writing, nor will they be able to cast spells.

This spell can be countered with a proper Remove Curse, Dispel Magic or Tongues spell.

The material component for this spell is a snake's tongue that has been tied in a knot.
