In brief: Translation

The spine at the neck usually has a gentile curve forward then back creating a bow like appearance when seen from the side.
Lack of cervical lordosis means it has lost this curve. Cervicothoracic is just a term locating what they see as a slight curve (side to side) in the upper back.
