Memorize Chinese Names of Toes

 

In Chinese language, two homophonic Chinese characters are used as the core keywords to address fingers and toes of a human body in Chinese respectively. The Chinese character “趾 (zhǐ)” has the completely same pronunciation as the finger’s Chinese name “指”, but is written differently. This character of “趾” refers exclusively to the toes on foot.

在中文里,分别使用了两个同音不同形的汉字作为称呼手指和脚趾的核心关键字。脚趾的“趾”与手指的“指”同音,但写法不同,“趾”字专指脚部的趾头。

As we know how to call fingers in the Chinese language from the previous story, all Chinese names of fingers and hand parts consist of the core characters like “手 (shǒu)” or “指 (zhǐ)”. The toes and feet parts do have the similarities in Chinese naming. Almost all Chinese words containing such core characters like “脚 (jiǎo)” or “趾 (zhǐ)” are referring to the feet parts.

如之前介绍手指等名称的故事里讲述的,所有手部的中文名称里都带有“手”、“指”这样的字眼。各脚部的中文叫法也有异曲同工之处。几乎所有包含“脚”、“趾”字的词语,都暗示与脚部有关。

What’s more, the Chinese names of toes seem to be much easier to memorize than finger names because most of them are named in sequence of numbers. Let’s jump right in to the follow topic.

更重要的是,脚趾的中文名看起来比手指名更容易记忆些,毕竟大多数脚趾名都以数字顺序来命名的。以下进入正题。



Big Toe or Great Toe – 大拇趾 (dà mǔ zhǐ)

“大拇趾”: The Chinese name of Big Toe pronounces exactly the same as that of Thumb Finger in Chinese, only with a difference in writing of the ending characters between “趾” and “指” for differentiations of hand or foot parts. As the first and the thickest toe on the foot, it can also be called as “大脚趾 (dà jiǎo zhǐ)” in spoken Chinese, equal to the meaning of big toe.

大拇趾:读音与手上的“大拇指”完全相同,仅末尾用“趾”字来区分,指脚上最粗的一只脚趾。口头上也可称为“大脚趾”。

Little Toe or Baby Toe – 小拇趾 (xiǎo mǔ zhǐ)

“小拇趾”: refers to the smallest fifth toe standing at end of the foot, with a Chinese name similar to the Little Finger “小拇指” but only replacing the ending character “指” by “趾”.  The Chinese character “趾” is used to indicate the toes, and the character “小” is used to describe the small shape/size/volume, opposite to the character of “大”. You can also speak the baby toe in Chinese as “小脚趾”.

小拇趾:与手部大小拇指的命名原理相似,指脚部末尾的最小的第五趾。但用“趾”字取代“小拇指”里的“指”字用来指示与脚趾相关;用“小”字来形容形状和体积大小,与“大”相对。口头上也可称作“小脚趾”。

Since the toes are mentioned much less frequently than fingers in life, except for the big and small toes, the rest toes are just naming in the numeral sequence,  which are much more simple than that of fingers in Chinese.

在生活中,脚趾名被提及的次数远低于各手指。因此,除了大小脚趾外,其余脚趾头的命名仅按次序命名如下,比较简单。欲了解有关的基础中国数字,可以参见这些中国数字的双语故事。

The Second Toe – 第二趾 (dì èr zhǐ)

“第二趾”: shortened as “二趾” in Chinese, is the second toe standing next to the Big Toe. The Chinese word “第二” means the second and “二” is how we write the number two commonly in simplified Chinese, that is, the lowercase or simplified Chinese number two.

第二趾:简称“二趾”,即脚部紧挨着大脚趾旁的第二根脚趾头。开头的汉语词语“第二”指第二的意思,其中“二”是数字 2 的简体中文书写方法,即中文小写数字二。

The Third Toe or Middle Toe – 第三趾 (dì sān zhǐ)

“第三趾”: can be shortened as “三趾” in Chinese, referring to the Third Toe counting in order from the Big Toe. The Chinese word “第三” means the third and “三” is how we write the number three commonly in simplified Chinese, that is, the lowercase or simplified Chinese number of three.

第三趾:简称“三趾”,即从大拇趾依次数过来的第三根脚趾头。开头的汉语词语“第三”指第三的意思,其中“三”是数字 3 的简体中文书写方法,即中文小写数字三。

The Fourth Toe – 第四趾 (dì sì zhǐ)

“第四趾”: refers to the Fourth Toe if counting orderly from the Great Toe. Since it is closely next to the Little Toe, that’s why it also got another name “次小趾” in Chinese. The Chinese word “第四” means the fourth and “四” is how we write the number four commonly in simplified Chinese, that is, the lowercase or simplified Chinese number of four.

第四趾:即从大拇趾依次数过来的第四根脚趾头,也是紧靠小拇趾的脚趾头,因此又称“次小趾”。开头的汉语词语“第四”指第四的意思,其中“四”是数字 4 的简体中文书写方法,即中文小写数字四。
