Tongue, meaning both the tongue and speech, or language: lingua,-ae (s.f.I), q.v.; see glosso-, -glossus,-a,-um (adj.A), -glossum,-i (s.n.II): in Gk. comp., tongue-; -tongued.
tongue-shaped, oblong with a broadened apex; “long, fleshy, plano-convex, obtuse; as the leaves of some Aloes” (Lindley): linguiformis,-e (adj.B), lingulatus,-a,-um (adj.A); cf. ligulate, ‘strap-shaped,’ i.e. moderately long with the two margins parallel, wider than linear; cf. spathulatus,-a,-um (adj.A).

 

A work in progress, presently with preliminary A through R, and S, and with S (in part) through Z essentially completed.
