And, of course, there are the always fun BODY PART WORDS… hallux and today’s word: patella
Why say kneecap when you can use an awesome word like patella?
The word patella is derived from the Latin patina, meaning shallow pan… and patella is defined as a small movable bone, flattened and convex in shape, covering the front of the knee joint. It makes perfect sense to call your patella a knee-pan or knee-cap!
I wonder how many of our April Word Animals have halluxes and/or patellas…
