Hunger

聯合國糧農組織公布2021年度報告,全球有多達1.93億人面臨飢餓(hunger)問題,與2020年相比,增加了4,000萬人,糧食問題愈來愈嚴重。

名詞hunger可以解「飢餓」,其形容詞是hungry。例句︰The kid fainted from hunger while waiting for food at a food bank.(那孩子在食物銀行等待食物時餓到昏倒了。)As the world faces rising food prices, more and more people suffer from hunger.(隨着世界面臨糧食價格上漲,愈來愈多人飽受飢餓。)

Hunger也可以很生動具象地用作描述「渴望、盼望」,表達強烈的願望。組句時,需要後接介詞for,以點出渴望甚麼。例句︰Despite many challenges, he used the adversity of his reality to fuel his hunger for success.(盡管面對許多挑戰,他還是利用現實中的逆境來激發他對成功的渴望。)With the right attitude and a strong hunger for knowledge, you will certainly get into a good college.(憑着正確的態度和對知識的強烈渴望,你一定會考上一所好大學。)
