1. morsel (noun) - a minute particle or a small quantity of something (e.g., a morsel of food).
2. morselized (adjective) - refers to something that has been transformed into small particles (e.g., "morselized bone" used as a bone graft).
1. morcel (verb) - to remove piecemeal.
2. morcellate (transitive verb) - to divide into small portions prior to removal (e.g., the surgeon morcellated the upper part of the uterus).
3. morcellating (as an adjective) - e.g., a morcellating resectoscope
4. morcellation, morcellement (noun) - the division of solid tissue into pieces followed by its removal piecemeal (e.g., the surgeon proceeded with morcellation of the uterus).
KEY CONCEPT: "Morcel" and its word forms indicate the removal of something (or the process of preparing something for removal). "Morsel" and its word forms do not carry the indication or implication of removal.
