Hah! Demon orders are so finicky and downright dangerous. Wizzards must insane to have demons to order around. Just one misstep, and you are fucked.

Added to the complication is the amorphous nature of languages. As Alice had learned from Humpty Dumpty:

[quote] “I don’t know what you mean by ‘glory,’ ” Alice said.
Humpty Dumpty smiled contemptuously. “Of course you don’t—till I tell you. I meant ‘there’s a nice knock-down argument for you!’ ”
“But ‘glory’ doesn’t mean ‘a nice knock-down argument’,” Alice objected.
“When I use a word,” Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, “it means just what I choose it to mean—neither more nor less.”
“The question is,” said Alice, “whether you can make words mean so many different things.”
“The question is,” said Humpty Dumpty, “which is to be master—that’s all.”[/quote]

A very creative and imaginative demon can make any sentence mean anything.
