  2. forbidden not allowed; prohibited “Forbidden objects include: cotton swabs, bobby pins, toothbrushes, pencils, peas, bicycles, televisions, and carrots.”

  3. naturally • in a natural or normal manner “Ear wax naturally dries up, forms little balls, and drops out when we yawn, chew, or swallow.”

  4. canal • a tubular passage or cavity for ear wax “But is you try to dig the stuff out, all you do is shove the wax further into your ear canal, or ear tube, and pack it against the ear drum.”

  5. permanent • long-lasting or nonfading “Even worse, it is possible to cause permanent hearing damage if the cleaning object pokes at the ear drum.”

  6. observe • to see, watch, perceive, or notice “The outer ear is the part you can observe by using your eyes or a special ear wax checker that you can make using a flashlight and a plastic cone.”

  7. cerumen • ear wax “The outer ear is also where ear wax, or cerumen, is made.”

  8. glands • a cell, group of cells, or organ producing a secretion “Inside the ear canal are about two thousand special sweat glands.”

  9. coats • a layer of anything that covers a surface “Ear wax coats the inside of the ear canal to trap any nasty stuff like dirt, dust, and bugs that get into your ear.”
