Entry: parietal (n. / adj.)


In context: "The engineer always has to tighten his own headset's cranial band down from the 'Those Were' engineer's mammoth parietal breadth."

Definition: A large quadrangular bone, located between the frontal and occipital bones, that forms part of the top and lateral wall of each half of the skull.

Other:  I sometimes feel a little like these physiological terms don't have a whole lot of everyday or even every-other-day utility.
