Why is "durst" capitalized (German lesson food 2)
so I was looking through the food2 and the 2nd lesson capitalized durst and I don't know why. any answers?
In English "thirsty" is an adjective. So being thirsty is like a status. In the opinion of Germans, you have something: a lack of water, called "Durst".
It is the same with the lack of food: der Hunger.
The English noun is "thirst". And the, erm, lack of food is "hunger", the same word as in German.
Yes, but I think what Jussel11 meant was that it's "I am thirsty" in English vs. "I have thirst" in German.
(...although "Ich bin durstig" works just as well in German, but the original question was about the "Ich habe Durst" variant.)
