Glossa is Greek for {Latin} lingua {"tongue"} and with it are derived {Greek compound nous like} cinoglossa, which is {in Latin} lingua canis {lit. "dog's tongue"}, {Greek} arnoglossa - {Latin} agni {sc. lingua; lit. "lamb's tongue"}, {Greek} buglosa - {Latin} bovis {sc. lingua; lit. "oxtongue"}, {Greek} ippoglosa - {Latin} equi {sc. lingua; lit."horse-tongue"} etc. in that same manner.


Greek γλῶσσα /glôssa/ means "tongue; language",

κυνόγλωσσον /kynóglōsson/ - {lit. "hound's tongue", the name of a plant},

ἀρνόγλωσσον /arnóglōsson/ - (lit. "lamb's tongue", the plant "plantain"},

βούγλωσσον /boúglōsson/ - {lit. "ox-tongue", name of a plant",

ἱππόγλωσσον /hippóglōsson/ {lit. "horse's tongue" but see Commentary to entry Ippoglossos}.
