Meaning of Cough
A cough ( pronunciation (help·info) Latin: tussis) is a sudden and often repetitively occurring reflex which helps to clear the large breathing passages from secretions, irritants, foreign particles and microbes. The cough reflex consists of three phases: an inhalation, a forced exhalation against a closed glottis, and a violent release of air from the lungs following opening of the glottis, usually accompanied by a distinctive sound. Coughing is either voluntary or involuntary. - See link


Cough in Spanish is Tos
La tos se produce por contracción espasmódica repentina y a veces repetitiva de la cavidad torácica que nos da como resultado una liberación violenta del aire de los pulmones, lo que produce un sonido característico. - See link
