Comment #1: For humans, which?
Curtis W Franks (Thu Aug 25 20:54:08 2016)

Technically, humans have only one jaw (which is typically called the lower
jaw). But in common usage, they have two (upper and lower). Which usage
does this word follow? (I suggest the latter. This suggestion seems to be
supported by the existence of words like dzixe'a. This would be
anatomically harder to define well, but it is the most useful/broader
meaning and allows for narrowing combinations such as the aforementioned
lujvo. Also, it would not run into trouble with other organisms which may
have wildly different mouth structures.)
