Mystical Miscommunications

Everyone knows a spell’s success relies heavily on the correct pronunciation. Write a story where the smallest mispronounciation of a magic spell causes comically disastrous effects.

This prompt provides an arena for a fantasy world that blurs the line between melodrama and comedy. How does the protagonist and their magical world handle this chain of calamities sparked by a linguistic hitch? Is there a way to reverse the effects of the botched spell? This also cues conversations and exploration around the importance of language and articulation, and the far-reaching consequences of mistakes.
