Eardrum \Ear"drum`\, n. (Anat.) The tympanum. See Illust. of Ear.
Douglas Harper's Etymology Dictionary
n. A thin membrane that separates the outer ear from the middle ear and transmits sound from the air to the malleus.
In human anatomy, the eardrum, or tympanic membrane, is a thin, cone-shaped membrane that separates the external ear from the middle ear in humans and other tetrapods. Its function is to transmit sound from the air to the ossicles inside the middle ear, and then to the oval window in the fluid-filled cochlea. Hence, it ultimately converts and amplifies vibration in air to vibration in fluid. The malleus bone bridges the gap between the eardrum and the other ossicles.
