A body is the physical material of a person or animal.

Plants that have more than one cell do not have bodies.

The word "body" is used to describe appearance (how something looks).

The body of a dead person is also called a corpse or cadaver. The dead bodies of vertebrate animals and insects are sometimes called carcasses.

The human body has a head, neck, trunk, two arms, two legs and the genitals of the groin, which differ between males and females.

The study of the working of a body is anatomy.
