Definition of «Corpse»

CorpseCorpse

Corpse: A dead body. The term corpse is more often used in in mystery stories than in medicine which, for obscure reasons, prefers the term cadaver.

Corpse entered the English language in the 14th century. It came from the Latin corpus meaning body and, ultimately, from an Indo-European word that is also the ancestor of English corpus and corporeal (and corset).
