Comment: Properly means 'foot' from the ankle downwards, but can also mean generally 'leg along with the foot', as χείρ 'hand' may also occasionally refer to the arm along with the hand. These senses have been generalised later on in the language as in Modern Greek πόδι 'foot' /lexeme/7537/, 'leg' /lexeme/7569/, and χερί /lexeme/7547/ 'hand; arm'.
