This space is between the lower jaw and the tongue, above the mylo-hyoid, andbounded behind by the fold of the anterior pillar of the fauces passing to the tongue.It is lined with thin, smooth mucous membrane reflected from the mandible to thetongue and attached lightly to the parts beneath. With the mouth closed, thisspace is filled by the tongue. It is best examined in the lixing subject when the tipof the tongue is against the upper incisors.

Close to its termination on either side is a smooth elevation caused bythe sublingual gland, which in the present position is drawn upward under thetongue. A varying number of gland-ducts perforate the mucous membrane withorifices hardly visible to the naked eye. Internal to these swellings at the lower endof the frenum is a small enlargement on each side of the median line, so closelyblended, however, as to seem but one ; these eleations, the cariuiculce salivares, mark the point at which the duct of the submaxillary gland opens on each side.This duct runs along the floor of the sublingual space between the mylo-hyoidmuscle and the mucous membrane, a small part of the gland usually acco
