cut tongue lining
Explanation:
In a textile context, "Futter" generally means "lining". I did a Yahoo search for "tongue lining", and there were many hits for the phrase in your context. So I think there's no doubt that "Zungenfutter" is "tongue lining".

I'm a little less certain on "angeschnitten", but "anschneiden" generally only means "cut". Or maybe it's "trimmed". That one might need more work. But I'm quite positive about the translation of "Zungenfutter".

Another meaning of \"anschneiden\" is \"truncate\". \"Truncated tongue lining\" really doesn\'t sound right, but \"truncate\" and \"trim\" are reasonably similar semantically, so the lining might be trimmed, or shortened in some way. Sorry I can\'t be a bit more definite on \"angeschnitten\".

agree  Sara Noss: Just a thought, but would 'tapered' be a useful alternative to trimmed or truncated?
