In superalgebra

In the context of superalgebra, the quotient of a superalgebra by the ideal generated by its odd part (its “soul”) is called its body.

See at superalgebra – Adjoints to inclusion of plain algebras and at bosonic modality.

This terminology is (for the special case of Grassmann algebras at least) due to DeWitt 92, p. 1
