I just looked more closely at the links in the Wookieepedia article and noticed that "slicing off" linked to its own article, called "Cho Sun", which is "the act of cutting off an opponent's weapon arm" according to the article.* "Cutting off" links to the article on dismemberment, which also gives the examples of "[c]ho mok was the act of cutting off an opponent's limb, usually the leg. Mou kei was a variant generally forbidden by the Jedi since it involved cutting through several limbs at once."
Sometimes it's hard to take Wookieepedia seriously....
*Obi-Wan is noted to have "performed cho sun at least four times".
