What is the meaning of 'expecto patronum?'?

Answer

Roughly translated to Latin, "expecto patronum" means "I wait for a protector." "Expecto patronum" is a spell used in the Harry Potter universe to summon a Patronus.

A Patronus is a bright, ghost-like animal that defends the caster against Dementors. Each Patronus takes a different animal shape based the person who casts it. Harry's Patronus takes the form of a stag, Hermione's takes the shape of an otter and Ron's Patronus takes the shape of a Jack Russell terrier. Wizards who are too weak to summon an animal Patronus instead produce a burst of white light or a bright mist. Non-corporeal Patronus summons are not as effective as Patronus summons with a solid animal shape.
