Writer's Block: Something to cry about

How do you feel about corporeal punishment?


I don't think anyone should be hit. "corporeal" means "of the body". "corporal" punishment is what you want when referring to the death penalty.

"corporal" punishment is spanking, etc.
"capital" punishment is what you want when referring to the death penalty.

See, I knew I should have looked it up. At least I get half a point for knowing "corporeal".
