Comment #1: Brow or Forehead
Curtis W Franks (Thu Aug 25 20:42:27 2016)

Is this word for the brow (ridge, regardless of hair) or for the forehead
(flat region above the brow)? These are rather distinct things to me. I
would accept that it is the word for the combined region of these two as a
whole, but the descriptor of "projecting flat/smooth head/body-part"
confuses me. The descriptor seems to narrow the meaning, but I still cannot
really tell to which since "projecting" would probably reference the brow
ridge if it had to be one of the two but "flat/smooth" would reference the
forehead; I suppose that one could consider the forehead to project too, so
my interpretation is that the word should only be for the forehead.
