A lot of US spellings make far more sense than English ones - I don't know why we decided it would be a good idea to need both an O and a U in through.
Or a G.
Or an H.

We should be able to put cervical vertebrae for the back of your neck.

level 50
Feb 27, 2015
The cervical vertebrae are the ones just immediately below the skull. They don't make up the entire spine.
+1
level 40
Mar 20, 2015
I think she's referring to the clue "back of the neck" not "backbone." The cervical vertebrae make up the neck (as you stated), so that should be accepted.
+6
level 71
Jun 15, 2015
Except the cervical vertebrae aren't the back of your neck, they're inside your neck. Nape is the best fit for the back of your neck.

Actually, I didn't even think of "nostril" because I figured that was a colloquialism like "belly button." I figured the right answer would be the medical term, which I didn't know. But now I do.

Actually he is just showing off that he knows the technical medical term, he's not really helping much at all. The quiz doesn't specify "proper medical term." It simply asks for the names of the body parts, which to me could be medical or non-medical.

Jun 30, 2013
you should accept multiple spellings for nape, such as nap and knap also you should accept incisor for incisors as well.

Those spellings would be wrong which is why they aren't accepted.

Why are a bunch of other wrong spellings on 99% of Jetpunk quizzes accepted then?
+1
level 49
Mar 6, 2018
Because no one spells "nape" as "nap" (which is a short period of sleep) or "knap" (the crest of a hill).
+3
level 20
Mar 6, 2018
So if nobody ever spelled "nape" as "nap" or "knap", then no wrong spellings would ever be accepted on Jetpunk? Ever? Fascinating...

level 16
Mar 6, 2018
Y'know, it never ceases to amaze me how people on Jetpunk will complain and cry niagra falls when an incorrect spelling they use all the time doesn't work, but when someone else says their incorrect spellings should be accepted, they instantly pounce on them and treat them as an highly stupid individual.

I suggest accepting plantar for bottom of foot.

"Plantar" is a term which means relating to the bottom of the foot, it's not actually the bottom of the foot.

Would like to see a lot more quizzes on more serious subject matter like this.. so much pop-culture type stuff on the site.. but educational quizzes with graphics etc. make learning some pretty obscure but cool stuff FUN for once. For example.. if you wanted to do a medical terminology set of anatomy quizzes.. but do them like the "Countries of the world" quiz or the various regional geography quizzes - so maybe one of the quizzes might be brain anatomy - and then it highlights an area of the brain on a simple 3D-ish graphic and says what that area does - and you have to type the name of the area in.. or a companion quiz to that where it gives the area and name and you have to say what it does - or a quiz where there's two answers for each highlighted area - the name - and what it does.. would be SOOO cool - I'd love you forever :D Do that for the full human anatomy and I'll swear by JetPunk inside out, backwards, up down and sideways for the rest of my life :D

I tried plantar for bottom of the foot. It didn't work :(
+1
level 49
Mar 6, 2018
That's because plantar isn't the bottom of the foot. It is a term which means relating to the bottom of the foot which is where names for disorders such as "plantar fasciitis" comes from.
+1
level 27
Apr 21, 2014
I think sole is fine, but you should allow Plantar for the bottom of the foot since that is technically correct
+2
level 44
Sep 1, 2014
Plantar is an adjective describing something that occurs on the sole of the foot like a plantar wart or plantar fasciitis. It is not itself a noun.

I do not work at KFC. I've never even been INSIDE KFC. I learned it from reading a very, very, incredibly large amount. I read a LOT. When I see signs that say 'Read five books over the summer', I feel sad about the world's condition. I learn a lot from reading. So THAT'S where I learned it.

"Umbilicalis" is an adjective meaning "related or relevant to the navel", not "navel". "Navel" would be "umbilicus".
