Eye and heart don't make the list but eybrow and butt do? That seems suspect. Organ is sort of a broad category and should be in the excluded list. And speaking of that, why is "rod" on the excluded list? I doubt we are down to the rods and cones of the eye and the only other reference would be on the questionable list anyway.

Also, it's a politically-correct quiz. I'm pretty sure that some of the most commonly used words refer to people's "private parts". At least in my native Denmark that would be the case. :)

I am surprised at not seeing "nail". Although it's one of those words where you need to check the context to see if it's used as a body part or as a building product. I wonder how that works anyway as there are other words there too that don't always refer to body parts.

Stupid quiz, who calls their arse/backside/bum a "butt"? What about genitals... none of those work. Are you telling me you asked a bunch of people to name bodyparts and they named "forehead" before they gave numerous names for their knackers? Haway man.

Americans say butt, and would not be caught dead saying backside or bum, let alone arse. Plus, I don't know what my "knackers" even are (nor does my spell check). Some things are just regional!

Americans do say backside, bum, arse, fanny, etc.... but usually only when they're trying to sound intentionally ridiculous for comedic effect. "Backside" has some limited mainstream popularity in the American South. "Bottom" is favored among prudes who think "butt" is too racy. "Hiney," "seat," "caboose" maybe among small children or those speaking to them. Tush, Tucchus, Rear End.... there are so many words for butts and sex organs.

Butt is short for buttocks, but I was never allowed to say it when I was young although Mom didn't say anything when my brothers did. It was considered a vulgar word nice young ladies didn't say in the 1950s and early '60s. I had to say "bottom". BTW, Kalba, when my daughter went to school in Australia, she was warned not to say fanny when meaning buttocks. Apparently it has a completely different meaning there.

rear end/buttocks/bottom/ass/arse instead of butt (or have them interchangeable)? uterus? kidney? nerve? artery? vein? blood? eyelid?

No kidneys??? No cheeks, intestine, pancreas or spleen etc. back, hip, butt accepted separately. Poor quiz

Why wouldn't back, hip, and butt be accepted separately? They are three completely different things.

Also back, hip, and butt are entirely different parts of the body. If you asked someone to point to each, they would never point to the same thing.

Again, Americans say butt, but not the others (you Brits actually refer to your butt as your "posterior" in everyday conversation?).

Good quiz, a bit more flexibility on type-ins would be nice. As some of the others have said, bottom, backside, and even arse/ass etc for 'butt' and the likes of teeth for 'tooth'.

The quiz is about most commonly used words. If "butt" is used more often than backside (what a weird word) or ass, nothing the quizmaster can do about it. Accepting synonyms would go against the basic concept of the quiz.

Body "part" quiz? The problem is that this quiz - the most flawed quiz on this entire site - doesn't know what a body part is, nor how to account for "double-count." Arms and Legs ARE limbs. To accept them both is just absurd. Words that describe general regions of the human facade, such as face, IS NOT ACTUALLY A BODY PART! The heart, lung, liver, etc. ARE organs. Yet again - this is a double-count. This list needs serious fixing. At least change the title to "any random words pertaining to the body" because it most certainly is NOT about body parts!

Face is not a body part? Interesting.

The face is a part of the body and the nose is a part of the body, yet the nose is also a part of the face. See how that works? This is a quiz about the most used words pertaining to body parts in everyday language, not an attempt to divide the body into 46 exclusive parts or anything like that.

"Organ"? really? Also no genitalia?

Mar 29, 2018
I seldom hear the word genitalia used in common speech, and I'd guess there are too many other words for any of them to make the list individually.

Who else sang "Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes (Knees and Toes)" while doing this? :)

I wondered if words with multiple meanings such as organ were counted only when used as a body part, or if the tally was the number of times the word was used, regardless of meaning.

I think you should accept teeth for tooth. You accept eye for eyes and other single organs. I did also try bum and ass... Not accepted but butt is there. That is more an American term

Didn't get any of the "unspecific" ones. Limb, organ, muscle, bone... Those are tough.

Organ and Limb should be off the list.

level 33
Mar 29, 2018
I'm sorry, but some of this just doesn't make sense. I feel like you should keep the answers either general or specific. Why are organ, muscle, bone, and limb included, and so are variations of specificity of these, i.e. leg, lung, heart, skin ect. Also, I don't get why muscle is included, but fat is not, as they are simply different bodily components, both crucial to survival, and given at birth.
