#B200 (body-centered to Boer)


Hello Word nerds. Welcome to the dictionary podcast. I was talking to somebody sent me a message on read it and I mentioned this podcast. Because they said something about they liked to put podcasts on while they sleep and I said Oh. Well, my dictionary podcast is probably good for that and then I said, well, maybe I should actually record an episode where I'm actually. Speaking slow and calm and soothing, which would be great for sleeping I'm not GonNa do that in this episode, but maybe a future one I will. We are still in the body words we. The let's see. The last two words are not body related but as I was reading through these the word body looks and sounds weird. Yeah when you see like thirty of them in a row, that's what happens. Right, the first word is body centered two words with hyphen adjective. From Nineteen Twenty one relating to being a crystal space lattice in which each cubic unit cell has an atom at its center and at each vertex compare to the synonym. That's not the synonym. The synonym is face centered. I feel like I need to look more into this because I don't totally understand that I need a visual for it. Next is body check two words Noun from eighteen ninety, two, a blocking of an opposing player with the body as in is hockey or Lacrosse today they have those in eighteen, ninety two. bodycheck is a transitive verb. They must have had something like those in eighteen, ninety two. Next. Is Body Clock Noun from nineteen, sixty eight the internal mechanisms that schedule periodic bodily functions and activities usually not used technically. So more. So not like in a scientific situation they're not gonNA say body clock, but it's more colloquial. Would that be the right word? Next. Is Body corporate two words. Noun. From the Fifteenth Century and we just have the Synonym Corporation. It's interesting that this was coined back way back in the fifteenth century and in you know recent years legally corporations. Are Designated as people, which is interesting. and. So I don't know I just find it. Cool that or not. Cool. But I find it interesting that you know body corporate that's sort of where it comes from. That's a body and a corporation whatever. Moving on to body count two words Noun from nineteen, sixty, five, one account of the bodies of killed enemy soldiers number to the number of persons involved in a particular activity. Next is a body double two words. Noun from Nineteen eighty-one a double who takes the place of an actor especially in scenes calling for nudity Yeah. That's often I mean I guess stunt double would be when they're used in stunts. Love seeing pictures of actors with their either stunt doubles or body doubles or whatever. They're dressed the same. They've got the same hair they're used. They usually look pretty similar. They definitely have the same body size and type It's just always funny to me. Next is body English two words English has a capital E. Noun from nineteen o eight bodily motions made in a usually unconscious effort to influence the progress of a propelled object as a ball. Next is bodyguard. Oh, actually that's about pool billiards I really want to learn how to do that I years ago. I learned how to angle the ball I was always just hitting them straight, but I learned that if you hit it off to the side a little bit, you can make the ball, go a Nangle, and then I always felt that the next step up from that would be you know putting spin on the cue ball, which I think is that's considered English rate by most usually unconscious influence the. But. I could never I can. I can do a little backspin or forward spin but I can't do anything make cue ball curve or whatever. I. Also don't practice. So maybe if I practiced, I could do that but I just think it's amazing. The control that professional billiards players have on on all the balls on the table. It's pretty amazing. Next is bodyguard noun from seventeen o four they usually armed attendant or group of attendance whose duty is to protect a person. Next is body language to words Noun from Nineteen, twenty, six, the gestures, movements, and mannerisms by which a person or animal communicates with others. We do so much unconscious body language that. and. In addition to that, we are unconsciously reacting to other people's body language that we're not even we're not even aware we're doing it. But there's so much that happens when you can actually see somebody especially if you're in the same. Location with them. So it's great these days as I'm recording this, we're all stuck in our homes during this pandemic So it's great that we can have these zoom calls with people where you can get some of that. That body to you know a little degree. But I, I, sometimes do recordings on these other podcasts whatever where it's just audio only. So you don't get that body language it's it's hard to communicate with them without that. So it's it's just really astounding. How much information is actually passed people just with body language. Okay next is body. Louse two words Noun from fifteen, seventy, five, a louse feeding primarily on the body especially A. Laos feeding on the body and living in the clothing of humans called also Oh, this is great called also, Cudi? Coo.

If kids these days still talk about cooties. Boy there. Some cooties around the world right now that we are trying to stay away from. The scientific name for this Sucking Louse is Padilla's Next is body mass index three words. Noun. From nineteen eighty-three, a measure of the body fat. That is the ratio of the weight of the body in kilograms to the square of its height in meters. So this they also call this. BMI. I think that would be. That's the same thing. In general. I think this is fine but my main issue is that. They don't actually measure the body fat. From what I understand, they're actually measuring just the weight of the body compared to the height of the body. And somebody can weigh a lot because they have a lot of muscle. And that's going to skew the body mass index the BMI. While I. think that this is fine. You have to take it with a grain of salt if you were not aware of that. Moving onto body mechanics two words Noun from Circa Nineteen, seventy systematic exercises designed especially to develop coordination, endurance and poise. Next is body piercing to words Noun from one, thousand, nine, hundred and nine, the practice or an instance of adorning the body with jewelry or ornamentation that penetrates the flesh. I'm very tempted to post a picture of some extreme body piercing I will try to avoid the body. Adjustments Augmentation there's a different word that I can't think of right now I'll try and stick just with body piercing. It's really crazy what I I have. No problem with it. I had an earring. Once I actually had to for a while in one ear. One of them got. All Weird. So I took that out and then eventually when I got older I was like, why do I even have this year in this is it was cool at the time when I was younger like eighth grade but it's not it's not for me anymore. So I took it out I think I do still have hold on my ear but I think it's pretty amazing what people do and it's just you know you can have fun with it so. That's body.
