How to use corporal in a sentence?

  1. Rebecca Ryan:

    There probably is reverse causation, but one of the things that some of the longitudinal research suggests is that when you look at kids over time -- so controlling for baseline rates of misbehavior -- children who are disciplined with corporal punishment versus those who are not, who have the same kinds of behavior problems, show increases in behavior problems over time in a way that children who aren't disciplined that way don't, so yes, there is probably some truth to the idea that kids who are predisposed to misbehavior for whatever reason are more likely to be spanked by parents who use that form of discipline than kids who are less likely to misbehave for whatever reason.

  2. Moe Yan Naing:

    I know that Police Brigadier General Tin Ko Ko instructed Police Lance Corporal Naing Lin to give Wa Lone documents related to our frontline activities in order to have him arrested.

  3. Amnesty International Iran researcher:

    This punishment exposes the utter brutality of Iran's justice system and underlines the Iranian authorities' shocking disregard for basic humanity, meting out cruel and inhuman retribution punishments is not justice. Blinding, like stoning, amputation and flogging, is a form of corporal punishment prohibited by international law. Such punishments should not be carried out under any circumstances.

  4. Brad Pitt:

    I think he’s smarter than I am. He’s not going to step in the same potholes, the industry has changed. It’s like the kind of film has changed. If you want to make substantial stories and things that are profound and mean something you kind of have to delve into the independent realm... He called Hacksaw Ridge a big independent film, noting that the film is not even that huge a budget or anything. Andrew Garfield plays Desmond T. Doss, a United States Army corporal and combat medic during WWII who won a Congressional Medal of Honor despite refusing to bear arms. Mel Gibson said bold men like Doss exist in the world today. MORE : Mel Gibson to be honored.

  5. Moe Yan Naing:

    Police Brigadier Tin Ko Ko gave the documents to Police Lance Corporal Naing Lin and told him to give them to Wa Lone and said that when Wa Lone comes out of the restaurant, the Htaunt Kyant regional police force has to entrap him and arrest him, police Brigadier General Tin Ko Ko told the police members, 'if you don't get Wa Lone, you will go to jail'.
