Are there any for thirsty? Smiddle / TC@ 19:29, 28 April 2007 (UTC)

Yes, but they are rare: unthirsty, nonthirsty, and thirstless. Equinox 12:39, 24 January 2010 (UTC)

thirsty[edit]

Two senses seem dubious to me: (i) "Having a physical demand for satiation of basic needs." ("After all that work I am really thirsty."); surely this only refers to the "basic need" of fluid intake and is therefore the same as the sense "Needing to drink"?; (ii) "Having a deeply felt need for psychological attainment": seems like a needlessly specialized duplicate of "Craving for something."
