Besides, a few names of a limited range also occur, in addition, there are a few rare or absolutely sporadic names of 'the calf'. Historical materials and materials from earlier studies show considerable changes in ranges of specified names of 'the calf'. In the past, the names of 'the calf' were even more mixed than they are today, it took some time to create more expressive divisions, mostly under the impact of literal languages. Names of 'the calf', as a rule, have a clear-cut semantic motivation depicting 'a bulge', 'a bump', 'a thickness', 'a swelling', or 'softness'. They also are combined with specified names of the animals. Many of these 'calf' names refer to other, neighboring parts of the body, such 'a shin', 'a hip', 'a leg', 'a bone', etc.
