Will you please answer a quick question?

In English the word "digit" is used seldom. More specific "finger" and
"toe" are used instead.

In Russian [pal'ets] (="digit (part of body)") is the only word for both
finger and toe (and you have to resort to word combination to make it more
clear).

1. Is there a word for such concept in your native language or language you
are fluent in?
2. Is it the basic word in your language or used more seldom than words for
finger and toe?

I mostly have natlangs in mind at the moment: Arabic, Spanish, Portuguese,
French, German, Mandarin, Japanese, Hindi, Urdu, Punjabi, Bengali.

[ofc. im not stopping you from sharing other solutions like in Rikchik ;) ]
