Too Much Information

This is Not Scott's Tongue!!!!!!!! Just a trauma photo.

OK, Scott, I have consulted with other speech therapists about your recent tongue trauma. There are many disorders of the tongue that have interesting names: there is hairy tongue, burning tongue, and geographic tongue. There is also macroglossia (enlarged tongue), glossitis (infection of the tongue), anklyglossia (tongue-tied) and diglossia (a bifed or split tongue). You certainly don't suffer from aglossia (no tongue or the inability to speak). However, there is no name that accurately describes your condition. Maybe I am the first to identify "glassyglossia", having a glass sliver embedded in one's tongue.
