bowel movement (plural bowel movements)
- The discharge of feces from the body, an act of defecation.
- 2022 October 2, Cara Schacter, “My Year of Stress and Constipation”, in The New York Times:
- Mid-March 2021, at a bowling alley, I watch balls thunder down lanes and wonder if I’ve had a bowel movement since Presidents’ Day.
- The feces thus produced.
- A nonvulgar, relatively inoffensive term for this bodily function, acceptable for general use.
