In A : s, superior, m, middle, i, inferior turbinated bones ; c, part of the pharynx behind the nasal cavity. regarded as proving the assertion that the soft palate lies upon the tongue. Opposite the soft palate is situated another valve, which rises as an elastic, rigid plate of a tongue-like form from the upper margin of the entrance to the larynx.
