Score #10: Choose a word that has magical powers

Today in western linguistics the link between how a word sounds and what it depicts is thought to be broken, as the languages have evolved over thousands of years.
Still one can find that similar words stand for things that have something in common, for example a visual form, a movement or a situation or relation. One example is words starting with st in germanic languages, which often representning something long and thin.

If some words still have a connection to the physical world, do some also have special powers? Which words can be magical or mythical for us today? Choose a word that has, or one that you wish had such powers. If you like, collect words that are similar to your chosen word and see if you can intuit and find something they have in common.
The score can be presented as you like, in any visual or written form.
