In English, many things are named after a particular country – but have you ever wondered what those things are called in those countries?

- The badly decomposed body of a man has been found in a reservoir at Ogden.
- Peatlands consist of layer upon layer of partially decomposed plant material.
- Submerged leaves decompose quickly and can cause scummy bacteria to form.
- ‘When a body decomposes in water, it becomes completely disfigured,’ he continues.
- Her remains were so badly decomposed that no clear cause of death has been established, but South Yorkshire Police are treating her death as murder.
- Some 17 days passed before her badly decomposed body was found, 20 miles away.
- The body begins to decompose soon after it is buried.
- Most of the hotel refuse consists of leftover food, which rapidly decomposes.
- As the mulch decomposes in the summer heat, add more to maintain optimal mulch depth.
- As these mulches slowly decompose, they provide organic matter which helps keep the soil loose.
- In those few hours the body had began to already decompose.
- Vets said some bacteria could still spread after the body decomposes and could infect human beings as well as animals.
- Leaves decompose quickly, which can turn water murky and even make it smelly.
- The days when organic food conjured up images of overpriced vegetables decomposing before the eyes are well and truly over.
- The remains were so badly decomposed, scientists were unable to establish a cause of death, and murder was not ruled out.
- It takes several weeks or longer, depending upon the size, for the body to completely decompose.
- If there are badly decomposed or skeletal remains, we might be able to do facial reconstruction.
- While a corpse would normally decompose completely during this time, it is understood the body was partially preserved in a ‘mummified’ state for some reason.
- ‘When buried,’ says Emily, ‘an animal's body decomposes at a very slow rate - it can take up to 30 years.’
- For this reason, demolition experts prefer to use explosive chemicals that contain molecules that readily decompose to form gases.
- As hydrogen peroxide decomposes to oxygen and water, the resulting rate of the evolution of oxygen and I 2 vary periodically.
- Nitriles can be decomposed by acids or alkalis to give the corresponding carboxylic acid or they can be reduced to give primary amines.

- Glyphosate has little residual activity and is rapidly decomposed to organic components by microorganisms in the soil.
- Regardless of whether it concerns volatile or solid substances, chemical explosives decompose into gas on detonation.
- This water vapor can undergo a chemical change if enough additional heat is added, when it decomposes into oxygen gas and hydrogen gas.
- In acidic mixtures, such as many soft drinks, sucrose will chemically decompose over a period of time.
- The most significant user is the glass industry, which uses sodium carbonate to decompose silicates for glass making.
- Oxyhemoglobin is a fairly unstable molecule that decomposes in the intercellular spaces to release free oxygen and hemoglobin.
