    If you cut one head off of a two headed man, have you decapitated him?

    You have removed a head so technically yes as decapitate is etymologically "head removal"

    and semantically?

    Yes, a good answer and I think you have heard the question before too.
    It is related to the question of how many whiskers make a beard.

    I hadn't heard it before I just remembered enough of my rusty Latin to translate it to removal of a head...
