 The tongue is really made up of many groups of muscles. These muscles run in different directions to carry out all the tongue's jobs.The front part of the tongue is very flexible and can move around a lot, working with the teeth to create different types of words. This part also helps you eat by helping to move food around your mouth while you chew. Your tongue pushes the food to your back teeth so the teeth can grind it up.
