|KEY WORD : architecture / general terms|
| 1 A
structural element or tenon that projects out from the end of a board, post,
or beam. Such projecting parts are inserted into mortises or grooves to
form a joint. It can be called a tongue, i.e., a long slender projection
cut from the side of a board along its full length. Then in a second member
a channel is cut out of the side allowing the two members to be fitted together
as a tongue and groove joint. The combination is often called sanehagi
実矧 or sanehozo 実ほぞ.
2 In the Nara and Heian periods sane referred to the underlayer of a plastered wall.
