In­volu­crar and En­ve­lope

The Span­ish in­volu­crar (“to get in­volved with”) comes from the Celtic volop­er (“to wrap up.”) Is­n’t get­ting “in­volved” with some­thing just get­ting your­self wrapped up in it?

From that same Celtic root, we al­so get the Eng­lish… en­ve­lope. An en­ve­lope just wraps up the let­ter, right? It even en­velops it!

We can see the i‑n-v‑l of in­volu­crar maps to the e‑n-v‑l of en­ve­lope.
