Definition #42362 - Preferred [edit]
definition co1 is a/the anterior (zootomy)/cranial/cephalic end (anatomy)/superior end (human anatomy)/fore/bow (nautical)/nose (skateboard etc), of body/object cl1; co1 (subevent) is at the ending point of long event/time-intervall cl1.
notes Metaphor: A tree grows in its long direction, with the roots as its starting point (co'a) and the crown as its ending point (co'u). Standard anatomical term to avoid ambiguity, but not restricted to anatomical objects. In vertebrate usually the head, in invertebrate the end with a mouth (or equivalent structure), or the end that usually points in the direction of the organism's locomotion. In most animals the same as the front (=craraipau), but in humans the same as the top (=gapraipau). See also anterior/superior absolute position (claco'uklo), anterior/superior relative position (claco'umau), posterior/inferior end (claco'a), anteroposterior (A-P) axis (selcla), ventral/anterior end (befco'u), dorsal/posterior end (tolbefco'u/bekpyco'u).
