Papillae

(En español: Papilas)

Say: puh-pih-lee

Papillae are the little bumps on the top of your tongue that help grip food while your teeth are chewing. They also have another special job - they contain your taste buds, the things that help you taste everything from sour lemons to sweet peaches. Yummy!
