    to still the pangs of hunger

    Dear teachers,

    Today I read a novel where I note an expression which drew my attention namely “to still the pangs of hunger”.

    Whould you be kind enough tell me whether the following expressions bellow might be used in the place of the expression in question?

    To satisfy, to assuage, to still the pangs of hunger.
    To appease my hunger.
    To stay my stomach.
    To stay my hunger.
    To beguile my hunger (with)….
    Sleep, if she might, her hunger to beguile.
    I have gone past my hunger now for joy
    If Walsh fads to satiate my own hunger for theories of interunion relations and
    interorganizational fields,
    ..to hold the cold of winter, the dark of night, and the pain of hunger at bay. ...

    …and it is certainly not simply to satisfy the pangs of hunger.
    But I grabbed something to stay the pangs of hunger on the way down.
    Once the first pangs of hunger had been satisfied, Cranston interrogated the friar.

    Thank you in advance for your efforts.

    Regards.

    V.

    Re: to still the pangs of hunger

    "pangs" of hunger can make the stomach feel bad. Hunger hurts!

    Eating can "still" (quiet down) those pangs.

    A hamburger can still the pangs of hunger felt by this teenage boy.
