I know that the definite article is normally used when discussing parts of the body, but I have oftentimes seen possessive adjectives with parts of the body while reading. Why is this? Is it just done for clarification? Thanks!

    Yes, it can be clarification. The best thing is to post the specific examples you have seen.
