  • WORD: body-bag


    (1) Same as the definition for body bag . All but one of the examples given on this 'body-bag' page illustrate the 'corpse envelope' meaning, not  the 'sleeping bag' meaning given above.

    (2) Only one example sentence here illustrates "n., A bag to sleep in." And that would be the sentence from Fat Is A Fantasist Issue: ' Mrs Cole could get her fourteen hours sleep in a seaweed body-bag . . . '
