English term or phrase: Tongue & groove
I know the 'Academy' term for it:
חריץ ושגם
but suspect there's a more common term used by builders/carpenters.
This is a system of joining insulation boards to each other by the tongue & groove method.
Thanks, Doron

disagree  Jonathan Addess: סין וגרז או שגם ומגרעת הם תרגום של Mortise and tenon ולא של tongue and groove

Although it is rather literal, it is used.
