Examples of word cord
Cord A simple name for Â‘tendonÂ’, a part of the body that connects muscle to bone For example, the heel cord or Â‘Achilles TendonÂ’ joins the calf muscle to the heel (Note: The Â‘spinal cordÂ’ is not a tendon It is made of nerves)
Tumours growing _in the substance of the cord_ are nearly as common as extra-medullary growths, and as the growth is usually sarcoma, glioma, tuberculoma, or gumma, and infiltrates the cord, it is seldom capable of being removed by operation.
_Welting cord_, a cord sewed into the welt or border of a garment.
_long cord_, upon some convenient healthy part, (the spinal cord, or other nerve centre which gives nervous service to the part affected, is best,) and treat the lesion with N. P., _light force_, five to eight minutes daily.
And again the cord is a part of the whole expression of the lamp, as it has been wrapped in grey textile material in order to bring a nuance of light and shade into the white look.
