I personally always liked reading that mentally tongue twisting turn
of anatomical descriptive phrase:
"anterior medial dorsal plate"
Followed by reading the continuing description:
"anterior distal caudalmost dorsal vertebrae"
And then thre was alwyas the easy stuff, such as:
sinistral/dextral anconial pineal
(those just roll off the old mental tongue)
Then there is the discussion of teeth which is a whole other story:
keels, carinae, etc.
