Synonyms of "Body" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between body and corpse ?
A: Body - Generally a person's body. Be it alive or dead.
I don't think body (when alive) can mean body of an animal but when dead it can be used.

Corpse - A dead body. Always dead.


For example:
"A body of a young man was found near the River ..."
"A corpse of a young man was found near the River ..."
Q: What is the difference between body and corpse ?
A: If a police report was to say "We found a body" and "we found a corpse", they would have the same meaning. It's a dead person that they found.
On the other hand, I can talk about my body while I'm still living, too, but I wouldn't talk about it as a corpse. Corpse only refers to a dead body.
"My body hurts from all the exercising I did" is right, but I wouldn't say "My corpse hurts from all the exercising I did."
Q: What is the difference between a body and a corpse ?
A: You could say either, in this case.

Corpse is more gruesome sounding.

Body, even though it’s still horrible to be dead, is gentler sounding.

If the police came to your house to announce the death of someone you knew, body is better to hear than corpse.

Corpse also refers to rotting.

Body also has other meanings. If you need to know them, let me know. I just wanted to address body in the context you put it in.
Q: What is the difference between a body (your actual body) and a body (a dead person) ?
A: There we go! You just explained it yourself in a way I didn't think of. A person has a body when they're alive. They are in possession of it because it's theirs. When a person exits that body, or dies, they become a body. They are a body now. They don't have it anymore. Man this is a weird conversation haha. Anyway, unless you become a police officer or see a dead person in a river, you pretty much only have to reference your own body. Hope this somehow helps.
Q: What is the difference between body language and gesture ?
A: Gestures are a part of body language.

Body language consists of gestures, facial expressions and habitual behaviors.

She waved a gesture at the man.

Her body language towards me seemed scared.
