[And because sometimes we'll want to print 'neck,' 'veins', 'wrists,' etc. without the owner's name glued on first:]

To say short version of (sale item - a thing):

let N be indexed text;

let N be "[sale item]";

let Y be the number of words in N;

change N to "[word number Y in N]";

say N.

Body-context is a thing that varies. The body-context is Snow White.

Before doing something to someone:

now the body-context is the noun.

Before doing something to a body part which is part of someone (called owner):

now the body-context is the noun.

To say set body-context to (target - a person):

now the body-context is the target.

[This will be used for disambiguation (see the Disambiguation section below) so that the game will assume whenever you're looking at someone and then look at individual body parts, you are interested in the parts of the person to whom your attention turned.]

Notes

[1]. In this game, it is not really worth implementing separate individual wrists.

[2]. We're doing a bit of juggling here, depending on what the player is most likely to be referring to as "blood" at any given time.
