“Parched” is among the Hundred Thousand, but our form “parchingly” is not (nor is “parch”, although “parching” is!). “Parchingly” is a derivative form attested in the 1800s, and here’s our quotation:
1851 H. Melville Moby-Dick ci. 497 Most statistical tables are parchingly dry in the reading.
I believe that Mr. Melville and I have different tastes. Not only do I love myself a good logarithm table or a nice analysis of variance to while away the long winter nights, I find Mr. Melville himself a bit sere. I may have written a few rash things in a high school English essay on the subject.
- 08.046 that they were also parchingly thirsty,
Update 2016.06.28: I am adding the “food” tag, as the word is related to thirst and nothing else.
