If it's what I think it is, then "frenulum". (Mine is also shorter than most people's, and I blame it for my inability to do an alveolar trill. Not to mention sticking out my tongue properly or, sometimes, eating an ice cream cone without getting my nose dirty.) Cheers, -- Philip Newton <philip.newton@...>
