Today I am going to teach you how to say bottom, leg, knee and foot in Chinese.
Before we start, letâ€™s review some interesting facts about our body.
Bottom: The bottom allows primates to sit upright without needing to rest their weight on their feet as four-legged animals do. In the case of humans, females tend to have wider and thicker bottoms due to higher subcutaneous fat and wider hips.
Leg: The human legs are exceptionally long and powerful as a result of their exclusive specialization to support and locomotion â€” in humans the leg length is 171% of the trunk.
Knee: The knee is the largest and most complicated joint in the human body. Since in humans the knee supports nearly the whole weight of the body, it is the joint most vulnerable both to acute injury and the development of osteoarthritis.
Upon birth, a baby will not have a conventional knee cap, but a growth formed of cartilage. In human females this turns to a normal bone knee cap by the age of 3, in males the age of 5.
Foot: In traditional China (10th through 20th Centuries), the practice of female foot binding stunted the growth of the feet of young girls, resulting in a very tiny, intensely painful, and aesthetically desirable (though deformed) foot- this was often nicknamed ‘Pink Socking’ as it left the foot bright pink (Glad modern chinese girls donâ€™t need to go through this agony).
