Abstract: We reformulate the concept of left thickness in a semigroup introduced by H. Junghenn in Amenability of function spaces on thick subsemigroups, Proc. Amer. Math. Soc. 75 (1979), 37-41, and obtain a number of interesting new characterisations of left thickness without assuming left amenability. Moreover, these characterisations are similar in nature to familiar characterisations of left amenability on semigroups. We also sharpen some of Junghenn's results, paving the way for extension to locally compact semigroups.
