More Information

Marc Okrand was asked if there were a word for 'be satisfied, I'm full', i.e. you had eaten enough. He said no, but accepted ghungHa' for not hungry any more. You cannot use it though to say that you are not hungry, that should be ghungbe' not hungry. But if you are hungry first, then you eat enough, then you can say DaH jIghungHa' "Now I am un-hungry" (= "not hungry any more"). It also works with 'oj the same way. (Lieven L. Litaer, qepHom'a', November 15, 2011)
