Act of corrupting. State of being corrupted. Reaction of the particles of a body upon each other. It is probable that something like corruption may take place even in the living body. The word is used, at times, like Bone with the French, in vague mannger for a state of puriform, putrid, or other breaking down of parts or humours. To spit corruption, is a vulgar expression.
