Anatomists have so named the boundaries of an organ. Thus, the bones, muscles, &c. have bords as well as bodies. The 'free edge,' bord libre, is one not connected with any part; the 'adhering edge,' bord adherent, one that is connected; and the bord articulaire, or 'articular margin or edge,' that which is joined to another bone.
