The -fors suffix is a modifier added to certain Latin words to create the incantations for individual transfiguration spells.

Etymology

"-fors" is most likely from Latin "forma", meaning "shape", "figure", or "appearance", although there is another Latin word, "fors", meaning "fortune" or "luck", which may be a hint towards the difficulty of transfiguration and the luck needed to perform it correctly.
