body

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
