It's not and that's because the word "wet" is only used when a human, animal or object is in contact with a liquid. I personally don't think water is in contact with itself whatsoever. But, that's only my thought. xD

true man, wet is only when we touch it and when water touches it self is like us touching our skin but its not wet.

No one actually cares it's an english question not a science one.

it is the science of english, human perception and chemistry

It's not. It's one of those waste of time questions that don't tell you anything even if you find out the answer. And english is not science not even close. Language is based on human perception  and is subject to change if we wish. Science is the exact opposite of that.

If you want to get chemistry into it, water sticks together through cohesion but sticks to other surfaces making them "wet" through adhesion. So do water is not wet. That's all chemistry does to answer that question.

Water is wet only us humans and other living things that touch it, I don't think it in itself is wet. :D

Well actually, it depends on how you're using the word since "wet" can mean that something is covered with, or touching, water,  where it can also mean a liquid that makes something damp.
So, if we were using the first example then no, water would not be wet. However, water is a liquid that makes things wet, so it is therefor wet if being used in latter example.

It could be.. If water was in it's solid state of ice or snow (depending on the proportion of water to snow), and then began to melt, or had then made contact with liquid water, only then could one could consider it wet. I don't think it's acceptable to say a liquid can make another liquid wet. Theoretically, I suppose it could but I haven't heard of such a thing.

Well, at first I thought "of course water is wet", but then I read all the answers to this thread and know I'm not so sure anymore...🤔

I have definitive proof that water cant be wet !!!!

we use air to air dry things all the time and air is constantly in contact with waters surface thus water is dry !

Water is wet because when you touch water you become wet. Which means wetness Is contagious. And water already is wet that’s why you can catch it.

I'd say that as long as you have at least two molecules of water adhered to one another and at least one of those molecules is in a liquid state, then yes!  It is wet!  If you only have one molecule of water, all by itself, then that molecule is not wet. 

Still, it's a good question to pose.

Of course it is because dry water is when it has been evaporated into the air... :P

Just to stir the pot...

I also use the term "wet" when describing things like solder joints that have nothing to do with water.  (A "wet" solder joint is one where the molten metal solder has flowed into/around the circuit board and the parts to be soldered, a requirement for a good solder joint.)

Also, there are places/conditions where it is impossible for water to ever be "wet".  On Mars for instance, the low air pressure does not allow H2O to be liquid.  If you put an ice cube in the sun on Mars it will evaporate, but it can not melt.

Carry on.....   :D
