a line segment is 直线段, that is, a line with limited extension in both ends (ie, of finite length). for instance, a pentagon is formed with five line segments. but an angle is formed with two half lines (starting from a point and extending to infinity).

footstone 简明英汉词典译为 “基石”。误导初学者。
中文的基石应为 cornerstone.
