What defines the chin and throat? When I think "chin," I think of the bony part that juts out; when I think "throat," I think of the hard voicebox portion. So what do you call the soft part in between--the part which approaches the horizontal?
I suppose you could just say it's your neck, but neck really implies some verticality--thinking of "upper neck" makes me rub the part of my neck where my hair falls to.
"Upper fore-neck" might be a good word for it, but it's a bit cumbersome... "Second chin" might offend those who don't really have double chins. The "lower chin," maybe? The "upper throat" has a bit of potential.Current Mood:
