Term Detail
GO term:tongue morphogenesis
Synonym: glossa morphogenesis
Synonym: lingua morphogenesis
GO id:GO:0043587
Definition:The process in which the anatomical structures of the tongue are generated and organized. The tongue is the movable, muscular organ on the floor of the mouth of most vertebrates, in man other mammals is the principal organ of taste, aids in the prehension of food, in swallowing, and in modifying the voice as in speech.
Number of paths to term: 18
