Accio

One thing that surprised me in the HP7 film was that they pronounced “Accio” as “Ackio”; I had expected “Axio”.

That is, I had expected acc- to have the pronunciation as in “accelerate”, since it’s followed by a high vowel; the pronunciation as in “accordion” would have made sense to me if acc- had been followed by a low vowel.
