A.Word.A.Daywith Anu Garg
noun: The lowest part of the chin.
From Latin, from Greek gnathos (jaw). Ultimately from the Indo-European root genu- (jawbone, chin), which also gave us chin, gnathic, prognathous, and Sanskrit hanu (jaw). Hanuman (literally, having a large jaw) is the name of a monkey god in the Hindu pantheon. Earliest documented use: 1888.
“‘The cyber sissy,’ I snapped, drawing near her to caress her gnathion with the back of my right hand.”
