Description

1. Humans have two legs.
2. At the end of your legs are your feet.
3. This tall man has very long legs.
4. He has broken his leg.

The demarcation of leg and foot in a language may not correspond to the English (speaking) norm thus it is important to identify what constitutes a leg (i.e. what are its upper and lower boundaries) in the language under analysis.
