Tips: Corporeal is derived from the Latin corporeus, "of the body." Corporeal indicates occupying physical space, that which can be touched and is tangible, as opposed to illusory or spiritual. Something incorporeal may seem to exist, but doesn't have mass. Corporeal is not to be confused with its homonym corporal, as in corporal punishment, although both words come from the same Latin root corp, which means "body."
