lung

(lŭng)
1. Either of two spongy organs in the chest of air-breathing vertebrate animals that serve as the organs of gas exchange. Blood flowing through the lungs picks up oxygen from inhaled air and releases carbon dioxide, which is exhaled. Air enters and leaves the lungs through the bronchial tubes.
2. A similar organ found in some invertebrates.

lung

- Goes back to an Indo-European word for "light," because of the lightness of the organ.
