words

So, today we have a word that could have originated from Harry Potter’s world………. but didn’t:

GORGONIZE

To gorgonize is to have a paralyzing or mesmerizing effect on something:  to stupefy or petrify a being or object.   The word actually originates from Greek mythology where it is believed that The Gorgons, three sister monsters, used their eyes to turn anyone who looked at them into stone.
