CRAVE noun or verb


Iain Fisher:

Crave is a verb with a few meanings but the closest I think is to long or yearn for someone.  As when one character says “I dream about you” they want or desire the other person.

I don’t know of crave as a noun, the noun would be craving.

Of course the title could refer to different things for different characters, just as in Kane’s play Phaedra’s Love the title is ambiguous, the love could be a person (the person Phaedra loves) or the feeling of love that Phaedra has.

I hope this helps.

Do you happen to have any bibliography/ stories to share on whether Crave is a noun or a verb?
