"Raise your wand and move it slowly and see the effects."

Specialis Revelio was the incantation of a spell that allowed the caster to reveal any charms or hexes[2].


"Specialis Revelio! Well, it was worth at try, what are you waiting for?"
—Draco Malfoy's attempt at the spell[src]


Latin specialis, "particular; individual" and revelare (present tense revelo), "unveil". Altogether the incantation may read as "[to] reveal the particulars [of]".
