  I am doing corpus research on human body-part names used non-literally (and not obscenely) in varieties of English expressed and understood by educated speakers of the language (For example: She is the head of the class).  Are there subscribers to this list who would like to cooperate with me by doing comparable work on human body-part names so used in other languages?
