Mortgageor
Mortgageor Mort"gage*or, Mortgagor Mort"ga*gor, n. (Law) One who gives a mortgage. [1913 Webster]

Note: The letter e is required analogically after the second g in order to soften it; but the spelling mortgagor is in fact the prevailing form. When the word is contradistinguished from mortgagee it is accented on the last syllable (-j[^o]r"). [1913 Webster]
