Face

Additional Links

(from Lat. facies, derived either from facere, to make, or from a root fa-, meaning "appear"; cf. Gr. 4alveav), a word whose various meanings of surface, front, expression of countenance, look or appearance, are adaptations of the application of the word to the external part of the front portion of the head, usually taken to extend from the top of the forehead to the point of the chin, and from ear to ear (see Anatomy: Superficial and Artistic; and Physiognomy).
