    What is the word?

    I am looking at the dictionary for the different idioms relating to "finger". I then learn the names for our five fingers: thumb, index finger (forefinger), middle finger, ring finger and little finger.

    I just wonder if there are corresponding names for the "fingers" (sorry, I don't know the right word for it) on our legs. Thanks.

    I think I knwo what you mean. The counterparts of five fingers for toes in Chinese are:The big toe. second toe, third toe, and forth toe, and little toe; however, I've never heard of the English counterparts.
    I'm also eager to know the answers offered by a native speaker.

    Hello Confused ( mochaichai )

    They are "toes"
    Big toe, second toe ( also called pointer toe or index toe ), third toe, fourth toe and lastly the fifth toe.

    There could be medical terms for them but we simply call them toes.
