Differences between "tired" and "sleepy".

4 years ago
Hi everybody,

I'd like to know if anyone's particular language DOES NOT
differentiate between "tired" and "sleepy" ?

To the best of my knowledge these language DO differentiate;

Mandarin Chinese: 我累了。 我困了。
Italian: Sono stanco/a. Ho sonno (Sono assonnato).
Spanish: Estoy cansado/a. Tengo sueño.
Portuguese: Estou cansado/a. Estou com sono.
Vietnamese: Mệt mỏi. Tôi buồn ngủ.

It seems German DOES NOT differentiate: Ich bin müde.

Any suggestions?

Many thanks
