Modern Bulgarian does not make specific distinction between leg and foot, however, originally крак (krak) was used for the movable part of the limb (that spans), while нога́ (nogá) (originally: claw), стъпа́ло (stǎpálo) (literary: stepping tool) or ходи́ло (hodílo) (literary: walking tool) are used for the static appendage (that supports).
