Begin! Welcome back to Weekly Words. My name is Alisha, and this week we're gonna talk
about super obscure body parts.” I'm a little nervous. I'm not gonna lie. Okay. Super.
What?
“Philtrum” is the first word. “Philtrum:” “the groove located just below the nose
and above the middle of the lips.” That has a word. “Philtrum.” That's this, I
guess. In a sentence, maybe you would say… What” How can you use this in a sentence?
Let's see. “I'm thinking of getting my philtrum pierced. What do you think about
that idea?” It's gross! “I hurt my philtrum in in football practice yesterday.” Who
says “philtrum”?
Next is “larynx.” The “larynx” is the “voice box” where your voice comes
from. There's quite a definition here: “the hollow, muscular organ forming an air passage
to the lungs and holding the vocal cords.” Usually I think we just say the voice box,
so I think the “larynx,” in particular, is really important for singers and people
who need to use their voice a lot. I think that they're even, you know, special techniques
that some people use to protect their larynx as well. In a sentence, maybe… “I have
to be careful not to damage my larynx because I need to be performing regularly,
and my voice is very important to my job,” for example.
Alright. Next is “navel.” “Navel” is commonly referred to as your “belly button.”
It's that, you know, for some people it's indented. For some people it kind of protrudes
a little bit. But the “navel” is just your belly button. Uh, to use it in a sentence,
let's see... Oh, I'm thinking of piercing my navel. Oh! Oh! I have an example now. Maybe
if you've had to have surgery on your on your stomach, that's near your navel, um,
your navel, the shape of it might be impacted. This happened to my mom, so that's why I
thought of it. When you meet with your doctor, the doctor might say, “During the surgery,
some of the skin near your navel might be affected by what we're going to do.”
Next is “pinky.” Your “pinky” is “the smallest finger on either one of your hands.”
You can use “pinky finger,” alternatively, your “pinky toe,” your
small toe, is also referred to as your “pinky.” In a sentence you might say, “Oh no, I broke
my pinky finger. I have a piano recital in three days.” That actually happened to me
when I was little. That's not a lie. That's a real story. Broke my, this pinky finger.
That was a good day.
Anyway. Next, “scapula.” A “scapula” is your “shoulder blade” on the back of
your body... your scapula. Yeah, what else can I say about that, your
“scapula”? Your shoulder blade. You have two.I think, yes. Maybe if you're a physical,
therapist or if you're someone who needs to train athletes, you might need to stretch,
uh, their scapula from time to time to make sure that it's healthy or in good shape. “Make
sure to stretch your scapula before and after every workout to make sure that you don't
damage it.”
Alright, end!. That's the end of obscure body parts. I learned some things. I hope
that you learned some things too. Thanks for joining us for Weekly Words, and I will see
you again next time. Bye-bye!
