Al­muer­zo and Morsel

Al­muer­zo (Span­ish for “lunch”) comes from the Latin mor­sus, “a small bite.” Lunch is just a re­al­ly small bite of food!

From the same root mor­sus, we al­so get the Eng­lish for a small bit of food: a morsel. Ah­hh! The (al)-m-r‑z of al­muer­zo maps to the m‑r-s of morsel.
