An internal sensation, which warns us of the necessity of exerting certain functions, especially those of digestion and generation. If the desire for food, occasioned by a real want, he carried to a certain extent, it is called hunger, when solid food is concerned; thirst, when liquid. Appetite and hunger ought not, however, to be employed synonymously: they are different degrees of the same want. Hunger is an imperious desire: it cannot be provoked, like the appetite. It is always allayed by eating: but not so the appetite; for, at times, it may be excited in this manner. They are very generally, however, used synonymously.
