Welcome to Harry Potter Answers. What would you like to know?

It remains an open question whether a wizard or witch can in fact "invent" a new spell or if all such incantations have instead stood incorporated into the principles of sorcery for the entire history of magic. For example, Severus Snape can probably be credited with the introduction of spells like Levicorpus and Sectumsempra to Hogwarts, but whether he actually "created" them, simply discovered them by accident, or learned of them from an outside source is unclear.
