The Greek has two akin words "γόνυ" knee and "γωνία" bend.

The Old Slavonic has two akin words "koleno" knee and "člen" limb.

Does the Greek word "γωνία" somehow relate to the Old Slavonic word "člen"?

If you see on the word trigon, you may find, that the "γωνος" part also means side, line segment.

trígōnos, “three-sided”

The historical meaning of the Greek word γωνία, in my opinion, is not a crooked line but a cracked (stem-broken) line. The Greek term πολυγωνική, as I see it, doesn't mean that the line is crooked but it is cracked.
