morte info.

To remember the word ‘morte’, which is the feminine form of ‘mort’ meaning ‘dead’ in French, you can think of the English word ‘mortal’, which relates to death or life that is subject to death. Both ‘mortal’ and ‘morte’ share a similar root in the Latin word ‘mors’ for death.

Other French words that mean the same thing or are related include:

1. Décédé(e) – Deceased.
2. Trépassé(e) – Passed away.
3. Disparu(e) – Literally means ‘disappeared’ but can also mean deceased.

In slang or informal language, you might not use ‘morte’ specifically to talk about death, but French speakers might use euphemistic or light-hearted expressions to avoid the harshness of the topic, such as:

– Casser sa pipe – To kick the bucket.
– Passer l’arme à gauche – Literally ‘to pass the weapon to the left’, similarly means to die.

Examples of sentences using ‘morte’ in French:

1. Elle est morte hier après une longue maladie. (She died yesterday after a long illness.)
2. La reine est morte, vive le roi! (The queen is dead, long live the king!)
3. Cette plante est morte à cause du gel. (This plant died because of the frost.)
4. La ville semble morte après 10 heures du soir. (The town seems dead after 10 pm.)
5. L’animal a été trouvé morte sur la route. (The animal was found dead on the road.)

Notice in examples 3 and 5, ‘morte’ is used in agreement with the feminine noun (plante – plant, animal – animal), indicating that ‘morte’ is the feminine adjective form of ‘dead.’ In French, adjectives must agree in gender and number with the nouns they modify.
