12. than the tongue.
Also, I'm not sure I'd speak of verisimilitude, a term used in literary criticism, particularly in semio-narrative analysis, to describe an effect of realism or seeming possible or likely. In English grammar, which is governed by normative conventions, we'd just say "correctness."
