Starvation \Star*va"tion\ (st[aum]r*v[=a]"sh[u^]n), n.
The act of starving, or the state of being starved.
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.
