Synonyms of hungry in English:
Monty Python once composed a skit (“The Cheese Shop”) in which John Cleese used both peckish and esurient in saying why he wanted to buy “cheesy comestibles”—which shows how a thesaurus can be used in portraying a hopelessly pedantic character in comedy. For an audience that is yearning for recherché vocables, a good thesaurus is nonpareil.Bryan A. Garner
