V2 Vocabulary Building Dictionary



Definition: 1. to satisfy completely, especially with food; 2. to overfill or oversupply

Synonyms: sate, quench, fill, satisfy, content, glut, overdose, overfill, saturate, surfeit

Antonyms: deplete, empty, whet

Tips: Think of the related words satisfy and saturate. To be satiated is to be fully satisfied or to be saturated beyond satisfaction. If one has an insatiable appetite, one cannot be satisfied. Satisfy, satiate, satiable, and satisfaction are all derived from the same Latin word satis, which means "enough, sufficient." Satiate is really a more sophisticated way of saying "satisfy."

Usage Examples:

She served a huge feast that would undoubtedly satiate even the hungriest of her guests. (satisfy, sate) verb

While on the diet, he snacked on carrots all day to try to satiate his cravings. (satisfy) verb
