This question has also exercised me. Gardeners speak of "dead heading" or deheading their plants when the blooms wither and go to seed. Shrimp processing involves deheading (and de-legging). Thus it seems that beheading is reserved for the animal kingdom including humans.A bespectacled person is someone wearing glasses, yet a beheaded person is someone not wearing a head. Very Strange!
