#2 is Wikipedia (Do most people know what a mortgage is?)
No. If they did, banks would never have been able to introduce the term "reverse mortgage" for a transaction that is in fact ... drumroll ... a mortgage.*
In fact, you and google seem to have agreed that the single word "mortgage" is equivalent to "mortgage provider". Which is interesting in its own right. If you do a one-word search for something that can be bought, will g### always assume that you are looking for vendors of your search term?
* A loan that uses real property as collateral.
