Lap?

level 61
Sep 22, 2014
Lap is not a part of the body. It's a word to describe an area that exists only when someone is sitting down.

I would put "brow" and "nail" in the same category as "lash".
+2
level 61
Sep 22, 2014
Brow is another word for forehead, so I included it for that reason. I thought about not including nail, but people talk so commonly about their 'nails', that I decided to include it. People don't really talk about their 'lash', or their 'lid' or their 'lobe' in quite the same way.

I don't know why I didn't just try 'nail'. I thought for sure it would fall under the oft paired with another word rule. Next time I'll just check.

Yep. If heel and (especially) arch are there, ball should be too.
+2
level 70
Mar 28, 2017
I would disagree. If you ever injured your heel, arch or ball of your foot, and someone inquired as to what area your impending surgery was targeting, you would respond either, "my heel", "my arch" or "the ball of my foot". You would never respond merely, "my ball". So ball is not a stand-alone body part when referring to an area of your foot, IMO.
+2
level 65
Jun 26, 2017
you could make the same argument for sole. I would always say "sole of my foot" but perhaps that's just to make clear that I'm not talking about a "soul" in the spiritual sense

level 68
Sep 23, 2017
I used to have a doctor who would always ask, as part of taking your medical history, what you were doing for your soul – even if you'd just come in for a tetanus shot. He unsurprisingly earned the nickname, "Dr. Soul".

Isn't Ear two syllables??
+1
level 57
Sep 11, 2015
I thought that too. I also pronounce Heel as 2 syllables
+1
level 60
Sep 13, 2015
Technically, they're both one syllable, but the vowel sounds in them have what is called a diphthong, such as in the word "I" (that's a capital i, not a lowercase L). It's pronounced "ahh-ee," when you slow it down; this is something singers know, because you want to put the emphasis on the pretty part of the diphthong (the "ahh", not the "ee"). But quickly, it's said "I", and I think most people wouldn't argue that it's one syllable.
+1
level 60
Sep 13, 2015
By "wouldn't argue", I meant for comparison's sake against "ear" and "heel".
+2
level 73
Sep 11, 2015
And if "hair" counts, why not "beard?"
+1
level 64
Sep 26, 2017
I think that hair refers to all kinds of body hair, like hair (in your head), beard, moustache etc. Not just hair in your head.
