English Makes Sense!

I am mortified by my recent silliness (re: warning - I saw a bunny cloud)! 

But I like my new discovery -

mort + gage --> mortgage

meaning 'death pledge'.  So that explains why there's a <t>

There are lots of <mort> words meaning 'death' and 'to die'.

And <gage> can be found in en + gage --> engage

meaning 'to pledge'
