ORIGIN OF Insaciable

The word is formed with the prefix in which in the Latin language means no, lack when placed before a word.

Now, the verb Satio, which is the original verb that follows in, means to fill, to appease, to fill, to satiate. Thanks to the prefix, these verbs acquire the opposite meaning to the one they already have.

Similarly, the term able refers to what is capable of, what deserves. This would be the meaning of insatiable (not able to be satiated).
