: 1)Is the dirt in the ear called
: 2)How about the dry dirt in the nose? I heard something like blogger.
: 3)How about the liquid in the mouth that we want to spit out? Mucus, phlegm or something else?
1) Yes, it's called earwax.
2) There are numerous slang terms, including snot, booger (US) and bogie (UK).
3) Mucus and especially phlegm would be correct - mucus is a more general term, whereas phlegm is specific to the windpipe and throat. If you're looking for very impolite slang, "hawking up a lugie" will do.
