A question about “anatomy”: I am reading “Er legte seine Hand auf meine Schulter; ich duldete es und zog seine Hand weiter die Achsel hinauf“.
I understand that “Schulter“ is the most common term for shoulder, and that “Achsel” also may mean shoulder, but that it is more often used for armpit.
Therefore, how is it possible to pull the hand “weiter hinauf” (further up) from the shoulder to the armpit?
Could this be an issue of my poor understanding of the German language (please help), is it bad writing, or is it something else I am missing? 😊
