V2 Vocabulary Building Dictionary



Definition: 1. existing with no physical body or form; 2. in law, an entity that does not exist on its own, but exists as an attachment to another object, like a copyright

Synonyms: nonexistent, intangible, celestial, metaphysical, bodiless, supernatural, spiritual

Antonyms: embodied, physical, substantial

Tips: Think, corpse, as it means "body," and real. Then add the negative in-, "not," and it's easy to remember that incorporeal is used to describe something that is not real or of the body--it's not a "real body."

Usage Examples:

In the book, the man dies and returns as an incorporeal spirit. (supernatural, bodiless)
