Examples from texts

A raw-boned, hook-nosed chestnut horse shambled unsteadily under his weight; two lean, crook-pawed greyhounds kept turning round just under the horse's legs.
Чахлая горбоносая рыжая лошадь металась под ним как угорелая; две борзые собаки, худые и криволапые, тут же вертелись у ней под ногами.

Nat went tractably enough, although her eyes never left the sizzling flowers as her mother went back around the table, sat down, and nestled her in the crook of her arm.
Натали прильнула к матери, однако не отрывала взгляда от пылающих красками цветов, пока мать обносила ее вокруг стала, усаживалась на стул и устраивала дочурку на изгибе руки.

The old shepherd, tattered and barefoot, wearing a fur cap, with a dirty sack round his loins and a long crook in his hand -- a regular figure from the Old Testament -- called off the dogs, and taking off his cap, went up to the chaise.
Старик-чебан, оборванный и босой, в теплой шапке, с грязным мешком у бедра и с крючком на длинной палке - совсем ветхозаветная фигура - унял собак и, снявши шапку, подошел к бричке.

And he had been hers for three weeks; and the crook of her little finger could sway him more than the fist of any 142- pounder in the world.
И вот уже три недели, как он принадлежит ей; и достаточно прикосновения ее мизинца, чтобы заставить покачнуться того, против кого бессильны кулаки прославленных чемпионов ринга.

Jim, himself, of course, had a perfectly ordinary nose, straight enough, but unremarkable otherwise; except for a slight crook in it that came from being broken in a volleyball game and the break never being surgically corrected.
У самого Джима был вполне обычный нос, примечательный лишь тем, что из-за перелома, полученного во время волейбольного матча, он стал чуть кривоват.

He spoke in a grating, high, croaking voice and one of his many idiosyncrasies was to crook the index finger of his right hand and screw up his eyes, whenever he was saying something weighty and authoritative.
Говорил скрипучим, тонким, квакающим голосом и среди других странностей имел такую: когда говорил что-либо веско и уверенно, указательный палец правой руки превращал в крючок и щурил глазки.

On the other hand there were extreme discomfort and danger, for these people would give you no rest, would observe no rules of war, and were desperately earnest in their desire by hook or by crook to do you an injury.
С другой стороны, это было крайне хлопотно и опасно, потому что они не давали нам ни минуты покоя, не соблюдали законов ведения войны и были полны решимости донять нас не мытьем, так катаньем.
