The literal meaning of foot is the part of the leg below the ankle in humans and some animals. The function, location, and shape of the foot have inspired many extended meanings. A foot is a unit of length in the imperial system, originally equal to the length of a man's foot. Foot can also mean the bottom or base of something, from its position at the lowest part of the body, e.g. the foot of the hill, page, or bed. Many phrases with foot involve movement, not just the literal act of walking on foot, but many figurative senses to do with initiating and deferring your actions, as in drag your feet. The idea of having a physically stable and strong position in foothold or footing is also used to mean a basis or foundation in fact or reality, e.g. a firm foothold and a solid footing.
