Definition
an external body part (such as an arm) that projects from the body; or any part that is joined to something larger
  • And since the nose is the central and most conspicuous of the features; and since it perhaps most modifies and finally controls their combined expression; hence it would seem that its entire absence, as an external appendage, must very largely affect the countenance of the whale.
