To­do and To­tal

To­do (Span­ish for “all; every­thing”) comes from the Latin for the same, to­tus. From that same Latin root, we al­so get the Eng­lish… to­tal. Any­thing that’s to­tal is re­al­ly all-en­com­pass­ing, right? Han­nah Arendt would cer­tain­ly say that about a to­tal­i­tar­i­an gov­ern­ment!

We can see the t‑d to t‑t map­ping very clear­ly!
