    • 2010, Der Spiegel, issue 33/2010, page 71:
      Sogar die Zahl der Millionäre wuchs 2009 um satte 17 Prozent.
      Even the number of millionaires grew in 2009 by a full 17 percent.

Usage notes[edit]

  • common in speech and writing: es/etwas/ihn satt haben, literary: es/etwas satt sein, dated: ihn satt sein, archaic: einer Sache/seiner satt sein
  • According to Ngram Viewer, the idiomatic expression with the sense "fed up" has been used much more with haben and the accusative (ich habe es satt) than with sein and the accusative (ich bin es satt) since about 1910. Even rarer is use with sein and the genitive (ich bin dieser Sache satt / ich bin seiner satt), which was common in the 1800s and earlier and which is marked as literary by the Duden and DWDS but is now very rare even in books (except in the expression des Lebens satt sein, for example, which is used in the Bible and probably therefore continues to be used in books, though das Leben satt sein has become as common in books since about 1890).
