X 30. tinued backward by additional collections of mucous glands along the edges of thetongue. The ducts—five or six in number—open on the folds occupying the undersurface of the tongue near the frenulum. Muscles of the Tongue.—These include two groups, the extrinsic and theiyitrinsic muscles. The former pass from the skull or hyoid bone to the tongue ; thelatter comprise the particular muscles both arising and ending within the organ. Theirgeneral arrangement is as follows. Under the mucous membrane is a dense sheathof longitudinal fibres, surrounding the others completely near the apex, and fartherback wanting at the middle of the under surface where the fibres of the genio-glossiand hyo-glossi enter the organ. This outer layer is the cortex. The inner part isdivided into two by a vertical median septum of areolar tissue, which is qu
