What are words? Are they the way that we use to say something, or are they a form of contact between human beings?
Are Words, simply words in some occasions? Or they may simply be denoted as other feelings from one human to another?
Can Words be really justified? Or are the letters used in creating these combination to blame?
No one can easily say that words cannot be misinterpreted, because in many cases they are. Either one can understand one Word from the other thus leading to a set of right thoughts, or the conception of the whole text would change, leading towards a definite argument.
So how can Words affect the person in a way that would make them do what you want, or the complete opposite?
Or how can words be used as a mean of confrontation, or even of commanding to another person?
Each person may know that the power of language is an unlimited power since one may use this for evil more than good. Like for instance, long ago, slave keepers, used to think themselves as more bright, and more efficient than slaves because they have control over the main language; which is the language that they speak, and intend to colonize other people.
One may see that the importance of colonizing other people, the colonialists depend on the subordination of their universal language over the others, thus leading to the acceptance that the fact of taking in slaves is a good thing; in the idea that "we are forming a better world by this".
John Adams says that: "Abuse of words has been the great instrument of sophistry and chicanery of party, faction, and division of society."
Even though some people may not agree with what Mr. Adams said, i find that he is somewhat right, since people tend to force themselves over others, impersonating the fact that they are no more than pieces of dirt, not worthy of their rank.
Henry David Thoreau said that "It is the man who determines what is said, not the words." And he is right, since any man who tends to say a words nowadays crumples behind a shadow fearing for the reaction that his/her words may produce.
But, one must be strong with both mind and integrity to find the right deal of contemplation in order to master the sorcery of the effects of words on people.
So all i can really say is that the magic of words is not in the way of correct pronunciation, nor in the way a word is understood, but it is how " You can stroke people with words" so says F. Scott Fitzgerald.

I'm reminded of the famous book by John Langshaw Austin, How to do Things with Words (1955), and also, tangentially, of the Coué school in France, at the beginning of the 20th century, with the birth of the then very popular "autosuggestion" techniques and theories.

I'm more reminded of a scene from the movie Waking Life where a character expounds upon the meaning of language to people as a sort of intangible connective tissue, the umbilicus of our souls maybe (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9oRQLoluXvY). Language is our attempt to share the singular experience of the self with at least one other person- and if that language appears to us to create an understanding betwixt and between, our hearts jump with joy. But ultimately the words are tools like a hammer or a chisel, and with them we can shape the perception of our selves in strange and beautiful ways for other people. The most noble and beautiful soul can be crippled by his or her inability to express with language, while the most dire and blackened heart can easily call whole nations to his or her side. Language is the first martial art.
