Anatomy Special Series Pt 3-8 The Leg (Buduek)

1:03 AM


Today we are going to learn about the names of part of the leg region in Melanau mukah.

The Leg is called Buduek. It it is always misunderstood as the foot. To my knowledge. in Melanau Mukah, the foot have no special name but the upper region of the foot is called Bau buduek ( lit. means above leg) and the lower region of the foot is called tap buduek ( lit. means base of the leg).

Hence when ones hurt his foot usually the region where it hurts will be mentioned.

Pedéh tap buduek kou- My sole hurts
Pedéh bau buduek kou- My foot hurts ( upper region of the foot)
