Sunday Rest: bunodont. Word Not To Use Today.

It's said BYOOnaDONT.

Yes, horrible, isn't it.

Look, I'm sorry to have to break this to you, but you almost certainly join with bears and pigs in having bunodont features.

That's not features as in the things stuck on your face, luckily, but features as in...well, as in things stuck inside your mouth.

Actually, that's even worse, isn't it.

Your bunodont teeth are the big fat ones at the back of your mouth, the ones with four low rounded hummocks on them.

It's usually animals which will eat more or less anything that have them (which is where the pigs, bears and humans come in) because  bunodont molars are excellent at crushing anything that looks as if it might be tasty.

But, I mean, something bunodont. In your mouth. Eu.

I don't think I'll go as far as asking a dentist to remove them, though.


In fact, the chances are I'll be completely reconciled to the things by lunch.

Word Not To Use Today: bunodont. Look, no one is interested in your teeth, anyway, okay, so there is no reason at all to use this word. It comes from the Greek words bounos, hill, and odōn, tooth.
