Jeannine and I were having a little discussion a few days ago about the difference between the meanings -- relative to body position -- of two words: prone and supine.
Simply stated, you are prone when you are lying on your front, and supine when lying on your back.
But this raised a question -- is there a term similar to prone and supine for when you are lying on your SIDE?
I don't know, though I suspect that there MUST be. Anyone out there know what it might be? --PL
