Did you know...?

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.
