 Tennessee - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Tennessee is bordered on the north by Kentucky and Virginia, on the east by North Carolina, on the south by Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi, and on the west by Arkansas and Missouri.
Tennessee was the only state that seceded from the Union that did not have a military governor after the American Civil War, mostly due to the influence of President Andrew Johnson, a native of the state, who was Lincoln's vice president and succeeded him as president, due to the assassination.
Tennessee was admitted to the Union in 1796 as the 16th state, and was created by taking the north and south borders of North Carolina and extending them with only one small deviation to the Mississippi River, Tennessee's western boundary.

 Ordovician - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Ordovician, named after the Welsh tribe of the Ordovices, was defined by Charles Lapworth in 1879, to resolve a dispute between followers of Adam Sedgwick and Roderick Murchison, who were placing the same rock beds in northern Wales into the Cambrian and Silurian periods respectively.
The Ordovician period is the second of the six (seven in North America) periods of the Paleozoic era.
Lapworth, recognizing that the fossil fauna in the disputed strata were different from those of either the Cambrian or the Silurian periods, decided they should be placed in a period of their own.

 Middle class - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Descending from this distinction, the phrase "middle class" came to be used in the United Kingdom during the 18th century to describe the professional and business class, as distinct from both the titled nobility and the landed gentry on the one hand and the agricultural and (increasingly) industrial laborers on the other.
Here the middle class is defined by a similar income level as semi-professionals or business owners; by a shared culture of domesticity and sub-urbanity; and by a level of relative security against social crisis in the form of socially desired skill or wealth.
A modern threat to the middle class is downsizing in many sectors of the American economy, competition from lower-paid foreign workers and contractors, and the systematic elimination of unionized labor.

 Middle America - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"Middle America" can also be used as more of a cultural than a geographical label, suggesting a small town or suburb where most people are middle class and White (no beaners or niggers allowed),and is often caricatured in the same way as is the American 1950s decade.
Middle America is an American colloquialism used—in contrast to "coastal America"—to describe a region of the United States that, geographically, comprises the bulk of the nation.
Geographically, the label "Middle America" refers to the territory between the East (particularly the Northeast) and West coasts of the United States, and may refer to the inland portions of coastal states, especially if they are rural.

 Middle French - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Middle French is the language found in the writings of Villon, Marot, Rabelais, Montaigne, Ronsard and the poets of the Pléiade.
Middle French ("le moyen français") is a historical division of the French language which covers the period from (roughly) 1340 to 1610.
This transformation necessitates an increased reliance on the order of words in the sentence, which becomes more or less the syntax of modern French (although there is a continued reliance on the verb in the second position of a sentence, or "verb-second structure", until the 16th century).

 Cambrian - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The time range for the Cambrian has classically been thought to have been from about 500 million years BP to about 570 million years Before present.
The lower boundary of the Cambrian was traditionally set at the earliest appearance of early arthropods known as trilobites and of primitive reef-forming animals known as archeocyathids.
The Cambrian is a major division of the geologic timescale that begins about 542 million years before the present (BP) at the end of the Proterozoic eon and ended about 490 million years BP with the beginning of the Ordovician period.

 Mediopassive voice - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The mediopassive voice is a grammatical voice which subsumes the meanings of both the middle voice and the passive voice.
Ancient Greek also had a mediopassive voice in the present, imperfect, future, perfect, and pluperfect tenses, but in the aorist and future tenses the mediopassive voice was replaced by two voices, one middle and one passive.
The Proto-Indo-European language, for example, had two voices, active and mediopassive, where the middle-voice element in the mediopassive voice was dominant.

 Grammatical voice - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In Classical Greek, the middle voice is often reflexive, denoting that the subject acts on or for itself, such as "The boy washes himself." or "The boy washes." It can be transitive or intransitive.
Many deponent verbs in Latin are also survivals of the Indo-European middle voice; many of these in turn survive as obligatory pseudo-reflexive verbs in the Romance languages such as French and Spanish.
In grammar, voice is the relationship between the action or state expressed by a verb, and its arguments (subject, object, etc.).

 Ear - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The middle ear includes the eardrum (tympanum or tympanic membrane), the ossicles (three tiny bones), two muscle tendons (of the stapedius and tensor tympani muscles), and two nerve bundles (the horizontal portion of the facial nerve and a branch of the facial nerve called the chorda tympani).
This is one of the functions of the Eustachian tubes — evolutionary descendants of the gills— which connect the middle ear to the nasopharynx.
The combined transfer function of the outer ear and middle ear gives humans a peak sensitivity to frequencies between 1 kHz and 3 kHz.
