A search of webmd.com was unsuccessful in finding lingual pneumonia. The tissue underneath the tongue is called the lingual frenulum; webmd.com references to the lingual frenulum related specifically to "tongue - tie (ankyloglossia) a birth defect in which the tissue that attaches the tongue to the bottom of the mouth (lingual frenulum) is abnormally short."
