one’s leg or legs.
The upper and lower parts of the legs (and of the arms for that matter), are described using annō and anpēxa. So sōrwe janō is the upper leg or thigh, and sōrwe japēxa is the lower leg or calf. Likewise with satāka janō, the upper arm, and satāka japēxa, the lower arm or forearm. annō and anpēxa generally mean near and far respectively. In this usage, the point of reference is the torso (sasātten).

Heh, heh… I can just imagine how this would play out in a bad fantasy novel/movie/TV series: “Come, brown-eye-fluffy-hair! The floating city of Zamzovia is but 50 leagolias from my torso! We should make haste!”
