    delicious

    If I see a delicious food,then,water comes into my tongue. Is this correct language that "water comes into my tongue".

    Re: delicious

    Not quite. We would say "It makes my mouth water".

    This also produces the adjective "mouthwatering", eg: mouthwatering smells were coming from the kitchen.

    For animals, such as dogs, in the same situation we use the verb 'salivate'.
