Lien on Me!

Here’s a word that I ran across recently that I will probably never use but that I would equate with (or consider similar to) having a lien on one’s property or offer something as collateral.

hypothecate

\ hahy-poth-i-keyt, hi- \, noun;

  1. to pledge to a creditor as security without delivering over; mortgage.
  2. to put in pledge by delivery, as stocks given as security for a loan.
