Which Joe gave his name to ‘sloppy joes’? We look at five interesting sandwiches and their lexical origins.
Denoting a crystal structure in which there is an atom at each vertex and at the centre of the unit cell.
- ‘Importantly, throughout all the analyses no clear effect of ‘left of’ versus ‘right of’ was observed for the present study, and therefore it seems unlikely that tapping works by hampering body-centred prepositional coding.’
- ‘The principal lattice structures are simple cubic, body-centered, and face-centered.’
- ‘Most metals have either a body-centered cubic, face-centered cubic, or a hexagonal-close-packed structure.’
- ‘Head position related cells in the parietal could support body-centred localization.’
- ‘Under ordinary laboratory conditions iron has a body-centred cubic structure (the alpha phase), but this is stable only at low pressures and is not relevant to the core.’
- ‘Martensite is a supersaturated solid solution of carbon in iron which has a body-centred tetragonal structure, a distorted form of bcc iron.’
- ‘In both experiments, glass formation occurred by transition from phase to phase (a body-centered cubic, high-temperature phase), and from phase to an amorphous state.’
- ‘Heat-treatment of steel involves the change of austenite, a face-centred cubic iron lattice containing carbon atoms in the interstices, into a body-centred cubic ferrite with a low solubility for carbon.’
- ‘If the head-related errors we found arise from a reference frame conversion of auditory information into a body-centred reference system, it is not surprising that we found no errors associated with eye position.’
- ‘Martensitic stainless steels are essentially alloys of chromium and carbon that possess a distorted body-centered cubic crystal structure in the hardened condition.’

Before you run for the hills, let’s run through a list of ‘run’ expressions that are running through our minds.
The definitions of ‘buddy’ and ‘bro’ in the OED have recently been revised. We explore their history and increase in popularity.
