TONGUE (in brief)

TONGUE or GLOSSA point to ideas widely spread across a panorama that includes: GLOSSARY, GLUTEN, deGLUTITION, reGURGITATION and so on. In any case, tongue per-se (alone) cannot "accomplish" such function without coordinated actions by LIPS, CHEEKS, THROAT or PHARYNX or FAUCES (Spanish), which produce a conduit like a FAUCET. Obviously these are complex themes and are explored in an illustrated overview indicate on the upper left column along with the root-ideas inherent in key words selected from the prevailing English medical parlance.
