Make spit: These are the smallest of the major salivary glands and are located under the tongue. They are almond-sized in most people and make watery saliva when you eat.

Sublingual glands: The sublingual glands are major salivary glands in the mouth. It is the smallest, most diffuse, and the only unencapsulated major salivary gland. It provides only 10% of the total salivary volume.
