abnormal Ebner's gland morphology  
any structural anomaly of the serous salivary glands which reside adjacent to the moats surrounding the circumvallate and foliate papillae just anterior to the posterior third of the tongue, anterior to the terminal sulcus; these exocrine glands secrete lingual lipase initiating the process of lipid hydrolysis in the mouth and empty their serous secretion into the base of the moats around the foliate and circumvallate papillae; their secretion presumably flushes material from the moat to enable the taste buds to respond rapidly to changing stimuli.
