Yes, I do realize this may sound like a "fluff" topic, but the question doesn't escape me.
Here i was, at a friend (knows not of magic's truth, and he invited me to his house to try his new game, "The Elder scrolls V, Skyrim". Here is where the topic comes in. In this "wonderful game" (i'm not being cynical actually; it's well-made), there were spells called "Thu'ums". Would these in any manner be a feasible form or magic, or Bethesda's "Fluff Factory nonsense?"
