Incantatem doesn't have a definition, it's part of a spell "Finite Incantatem" which is a general counter-spell.

It is a pseudo Latin style word. An "incantation" is the act of using words that have a magical effect when vocalised. The spell above could be pseudo translated as "Stop Incantation" "Fin" meaning stop/end from the Latin "Finem".

What does Priori Incantatem mean Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire?

Priori Incantatem is a very rare phenomenon that occurs when two wands with twin cores are used against one another. The winner of the battle will be forced to show ghosts from the spells they have previously cast. When Lord Voldemort and Harry Potter's wands connected, the ghosts of people Voldemort killed appeared. Including Harry's parents.

Why in the movie of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix does it appear that Dumbledore and Voldemorts wands emit a green and red priori incantatem when only wands tht are twins connect to do so?

== Because it's the movies. The movies are not canon. The movies are the movies, and therefore you can not question whatever they choose to do or it'll just ruin the whole experience. Trust me, I'm a Harry Potter purist, I should know. *sigh* == No, that wasn't Priori Incantatem.
