Word for "thirst" in as many languages as possible

Post by born2win. » 09 Jun 2004 13:14

Hello ppl,

I need to know the equivalent words for Thirst in as many languages as possible.

The more off beat the language the better.

I have found some through translation websites. BUt I am specifically looking for languages like Swahili and Ashanti. Any takers there?

Beaumont, you and kyliane have helped me a lot. Just one more request... Can you make the forum page into English or tleast provide another page in English. I do not understand French, am still learning it...

Thanx a lot,
born2win

I would just say "jano". "Himoita" is a verb, it means "to desire". It's quite literal actually.

Estonian: janu
