Boundaries vary by perspective. I’d think of {teS} as all the parts that are mechanically or electrically engaged in the sensation of hearing, outside of the brain itself. {qogh} is the cosmetic part that can be bitten or chopped off in battle, and serves no acoustic purpose beyond reflecting and shaping sound pressures before they reach the {teS}, so I would consider the middle ear to be part of {teS}.

When I think of {teS} I think of the cochlea, the eardrum, and the tiny little bones whose names I forget, and when I think of {qogh} I think of the part that a barber needs to trim around on the sides of the head, but the ear canal doesn’t seem to really be part of either of those things.
