Today's A.Word.A.Day from, "tragus", (see below) just reminds me how much I treasure unusual words--especially about body parts! Another anatomical word --PHILTRUM--is delightful--I find a "pronounced philtrum" to be a very attractive facial feature--probably because several of my brothers have nice philtrums, but then again, so did Abe Lincoln! Jon Hamm and Matt Damon also have pleasing philtrums, but Cary Grant has the double-whammy: GREAT philtrum and even GREATER cleft in his chin!


noun: The small fleshy projection at the front of the external ear, slightly extending over the opening of the ear.
