Amo, however, does not mean "bullets," nor is amat "a small rug," so beware of ... ioci terribiles (terrible jokes ): valete! (Wheelock's Latin, 7th edition)
In Latin, amo menas I love and amat mean he/she loves. Does the above sentence imply that amo means "bullets" and amat means "a small rug" in English?

I need native speakers' help.
"Ammo", not "amo", is short for "ammunition". "A mat", not "amat", is a small rug.
