acetabulum
the bony socket in the hip bone that holds the head of the femur. From the Latin word for "vinegar" due to its resemblance to the base of a vinegar cruet.


I'm putting this here hoping it will help me remember it. Hey, it worked for glomerulus and epididymus.

I've been working my way through the chapters on the muscles and the skeleton - out of order, as far as the medical terminology book goes. I'm glad I started on them early, though. There's a lot to remember. I don't think Medical Terminology seems to expect me to know as many muscles and bones as Anatomy does. (And neither of them seem to expect you to know all of them, the way a medical student would presumably be expected to. Thank goodness for that.)
