hunger
hunger: [OE] Hunger is a widespread word in the Germanic languages, shared by German, Swedish, and Danish as well as English (Dutch spells it honger), but it is not represented in any of the other Indo-European languages. Indeed, no related forms have been identified for certain, although Greek kégkein ‘be hungry’ and Sanskrit kákat ‘be thirsty’ are possibilities.
hunger (n.)
Old English hungor "unease or pain caused by lack of food, craving appetite, debility from lack of food," from Proto-Germanic *hungruz (cognates: Old Frisian hunger, Old Saxon hungar, Old High German hungar, Old Norse hungr, German hunger, Dutch honger, Gothic huhrus), probably from PIE root *kenk- (2) "to suffer hunger or thirst." Hunger strike attested from 1885; earliest references are to prisoners in Russia.
hunger (v.)
Old English hyngran (cognates: Old Saxon gihungrjan, Old High German hungaran, German hungern, Gothic huggrjan), from the source of hunger (n.). Related: Hungered; hungering.
