Message 1: Names for fingers

Subject: Names for fingers



We're doing some research about the names one might use to refer to
fingers in Galician. Does anybody have some bibliographical
information about this issue, specifically about the motivations
behind the different designations? It doesn't matter the language or
the point of view adopted.

Thanks,


Lara.
