With eyes blazing with anger, the sage uttered a terrible imprecation.
in (into, in, on, upon)#precari (to pray, ask, beg, request) (Latin)
IMPRECATION=IM-PRAY-cation. The prefix IM- means opposite. The opposite of PRAY is CURSE (The latin root word "precari" means pray). sounds a lot like IMPLICATION. one must tihnk of the implications before cursing.
