    Re: hop = jump on one foot

    You bend a leg at the knee. You are now standing on one [the other] leg.

    Now jump forward.

    This is hopping.


    However, an bird or animal hopping is moving forward in small jumps on two or four feet.

    Thank you Anglika.
    Suppose if a person has only one leg and if he tries to walk with the leg without any support, that pace will be like a "hop". Am I right?
