Mortgage. The mort part of mortgage is the same syllable that appears in mortify, rigor mortis, and mortician. Yup, it's all about death, French (and ultimately, Latin) style, but a mortgage (literally "dead pledge") was so called originally because it was absolute: the property was dead to the lender if the debt was paid, and dead to the borrower if it wasn't.
