  Starvation \Star*va"tion\ (st[aum]r*v[=a]"sh[u^]n), n.
     The act of starving, or the state of being starved.
     [1913 Webster]
  
     Note: This word was first used, according to Horace Walpole,
           by Henry Dundas, the first Lord Melville, in a speech
           on American affairs in 1775, which obtained for him the
           nickname of Starvation Dundas.
           "Starvation, we are also told, belongs to the class of
           'vile compounds' from being a mongrel; as if English
           were not full of mongrels, and as if it would not be in
           distressing straits without them." --Fitzed. Hall.
           [1913 Webster]
