The OED defines the mouth as:

"The orifice in the head of a human or other vertebrate through which vocal
sounds are emitted."

(no mention of its use as a eating organ).

'The orifice in the head of a human or other vertebrate through which food is ingested and vocal sounds emitted; the cavity immediately behind this, which in humans and most quadrupeds contains the teeth and tongue.' [Oxford English Dictionary, through June 2009]

You must have the economy edition.
