Isn't 뒤꿈치 heel?

How can I tell the difference between 팔 and aspirated 발 that comes in a beginning of a sentence?

Hopefully other words give the context.

I wrote ankle for 발꿈치. What is the correct word for ankle please?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DeepakshiJ7

The correct word for heel is '발꿈치' or '뒤꿈치' is also used

It sounds that the isolated 발 is less aspirated than the other two. Am I right?

That's what I hear on the slowed version

발꿈치 is elbow right? The previous question also show elbows, why suddenly change to heels?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Madhumitha_N

팔꿈치 = Elbow 발꿈치 = Heel . Just remember that HAND related body parts start with 팔 LEG related body parts start with 발 Hope this makes remembering easy

I'm not the only one who mixes up 발(foot), 팔(arm) and 팔(eight)

in the previous question 머리 어깨 무릎 발, i answered "발" as foot and got it wrong.. but now it's arm is wrong. -_- might as well put a "limb" option


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sarah610755

발 is foot, so maybe you got a different part wrong (I think the previous answer is the Korean equivalent of the kids' rhyme "heads, shoulders, knees and toes" but 반가락 is too long). 팔 is arm; a different p/b sound that I cannot differentiate.
