I was speaking with an acquaintance of mine the other day, and somewhere in the conversation I mentioned the lap (well actually "Schoß" since I am in Germany). So we got into a conversation about the word, and he said that in Russian and Ukrainian there is no word for "lap". He said that when you want to, for example, tell someone to come sit on your lap, you would probably use the word "knee".
Now here my question for you:
In what other language is there no word for lap? What word do you use instead?
What do you mean when you say lap: The area between waist and knees of both legs when seated? of one leg? when standing even?
