When people use the term “bodily functions” they are usually talking about peeing and poooping.
But there are other bodily functions as well. Here are a few of them.
Tussis is the Latin word for “cough.” It’s the origin of both tussication, a formal word for coughing, and pertussis, the medical name for whooping cough.
As well as being another word for a volcanic eruption, eructation is the medical name for burping, while the burp itself is called a ructus.
A sneeze or a sneezing fit is properly called a sternutation. Anything described as sternutatory causes sneezing.
Technically, flatus is just the build-up of gas in the stomach or bowels, not the actual expulsion of it. For that, why not try using an old English word for a fart—ventosity.
What other bodily functions do you know of?
