Pronunciation: /NAP-uh-tiyt/

Sentence: Since beginning his diet, Brian would experience cravings every night after climbing into bed each night. Whenever he tried to relax and his mind was otherwise unoccupied, a nappetite would creep up on him. It was not visions of sugarplums dancing in his head, but the pizza polka, the fried-chicken fandango, the sandwich samba, the chili dog cha-cha, the taco tango, etc...

Etymology: Nap - to sleep or doze (from Old English, hnappian "to doze, sleep lightly") + Appetite - an instinctive physical desire, especially one for food or drink (from Old French, apetit "desire for")
