  • English Lesson to Describe Anger ( Synonyms)

  • Hi and welcome to today's lesson,my name is Rima and today's lesson is very

  • very interesting. Well this lesson is all about describing anger, that's right

  • using various words to describe that one emotion that all of us go through at

  • various points in life and yes that is anger. So, I have a list of words, all of these words

  • actually.... you know..... describe different sides, different angles of anger, because anger is

  • one complicated emotion. So I'm gonna start with the first one on my list and this

  • one yes it's very simple

  • 'Bitter' now bitter is a taste in our mouth, we've all had bitter things to eat, you had

  • bitter medicine.So, anger can also be described as bitter, so bitter would actually

  • mean anger which is very very seething and resentful.

  • So, somebody who actually harbors really negative feelings for you, is somebody who is very bitter about

  • you or about something that happened with you. So I could say something like -When Sally and I had a

  • massive fight, Sally remained bitter for the next two years. Wow! that happens

  • between friends. doesn't it? You have one explosive argument and then it's like

  • the relationship not the same anymore it's become bitter it's become angry and

  • so negative. So bitter means anger which has a very very negative impact and a

  • lasting impact of that. So that's bitter for you, moving on I have the

  • word 'Caustic' Now 'Caustic' is another form of anger, which can be very very

  • hurtful. So, caustic could also mean being sarcastic. So somebody who harbors

  • a lot of anger negativity towards you

  • and how does that come out, it comes out in the way the person actually addresses

  • you and talks to you. I could use this in a sentence and say things like- Sally made some

  • caustic remarks about me at dinner. Which means - A. Sally was angry with me

  • B. She's been angry for a while and C. She actually made hurtful comments about me.

  • to make sure that I indirectly realize that yes she is angry with me.

  • So, that is the use of the word 'Caustic' wherein somebody tries to put you down

  • or being very hurtful towards you because they are angry with you, my God!!

  • anger can be a dangerous emotion to harbor, right? Well! moving on I have the word

  • 'Boiling' yes! Now what does boiling bring to your mind

  • boiling water, steaming water, which is really hot so, when somebody's

  • temperature or temper becomes boiling that means that they are very... very... very...

  • angry. So, yes boiling can mean extremely angry.

  • So you could say something like - When I reached office late, my boss was

  • boiling with rage, which meanshis temper had reached paramount

  • proportions and God bless me!!!...... that's right

  • So, we have covered three words so far

  • Bitter, Caustic and Boiling and as you can see all of these described whereas sides of anger

  • because anger like I said is one complicated emotion, moving on the next

  • one yes! 'Aggravated' a long word and a very aggressive one. Well! Aggravated

  • actually means - Very violently angry

  • Which means somebody who is so angry with you that you could probably expect them to pick up the next

  • thing in their hand and throw it at you, like the person can get violent anytime and

  • the person could get aggressive, bang doors , throw tantrums all of that can happen

  • when you a aggravate somebody. So you know what, I could use it in a sentence and

  • say - When Sally and I had that crazy fight, she was so aggravated that I thought, yes I

  • need to run for my life, because there was no sane what Sally would have done to me

  • so, aggravated actually means so aggressively angry that you could expect

  • violence and yes, that's your cue to actually make an exit. So, that's aggravated

  • for you and moving on we have 'Cheesed off' now, 'Cheesed off' this phrase

  • actually kinda makes me feel very hungry, because I love cheese all the types

  • of wonderful cheese, that are available in the world, but right now this has

  • something to do with anger. So, 'Cheesed off' means somebody who's just very angry

  • with you and angry because of a particular instance so you can use the

  • word in a sentence like - My behavior really cheesed off my family that

  • evening. Which means that instance or that incident actually let to them....

  • getting angry with me in a very instantaneous and fast fashion.... I mean it

  • was a moment that took them to get cheesed off with me. So, my family was

  • cheesed off at my behavior. So, cheesed off means getting angry quickly

  • The next one is very interesting because it is very similar to 'Cheesed off'

  • Now, 'Cheesed off' and 'Ticked off' have very... very closer meanings

  • and yes you could actually replace one for the other in a sentence, but there is a slight and a very subtle

  • difference which I'm good explain to you. So, ticked off.... so, Ticked off actually

  • reminds you of the ticking of a clock, doesn't it?

  • yeah! so, if I say - Sally is ticked off with me because of my comment. So, ticked off is a form of anger which

  • has a reason and that reason could be one particular type of behavior

  • particular comment or an incident, so you see how..... so how close they are in meaning

  • cheesed off and ticked off... you know I could say something like - When I

  • commented about Sally's overly red hair, she got ticked off, that means it took that

  • one comment to get her temper up, to get her to flare up, and get ticked off

  • So, ticked off is very very close to cheesed off and one can be replaced

  • with the other, and mostly it means the same thing - getting angry in an instant.

  • Moving on.... now this one is quite interesting 'Vitriolic' now 'Vitriolic' means

  • someone who is ready to spew venom confused? I'm sure you are... I'm gonna

  • explain and make it really simple to understand 'Vitriolic' so 'Vitriolic' actually

  • means someone who is angry with you, angry enough to criticize you

  • After her break Sally went 'Vitriolic' about her boyfriend, which means she was so angry with him and the

  • way she was treated on the experience that they had with each other that she

  • was ready to criticize him, put him down

  • speak about him in not such good terms, which means she went on 'Vitriolic' on him

  • which means all the inner anger that she was harboring against him

  • came out in the word ...in the form of caustic words, angry comments and not very very

  • appreciated remarks, so, 'Vitriolic' could be very tricky but the usage makes it very simple to

  • understand - After her breakup Sally went all 'Vitriolic' about her

  • boyfriend. Well! moving on we have three more and these are very very interesting

  • itself there's 'Antagonistic', 'Hopping mad' and 'Livid'

  • Now, antagonistic is a very very loaded term, antagonistic means someone who is angry

  • enough to become your enemy, so someone who is angry in such a way that he and

  • you have opposing opinions and thinking patterns. So angry with opposite view points.

  • So, you could use this in a sentence and say something like - I kept my mouth shut

  • because I did not want to antagonize Sally, that's right which means I didn't

  • want to get Sally so angry with me that she would actually harbor resentment

  • against me and have like completely different point and I could probably

  • lose her friendship which means antagonize is an action that you might

  • do and make an enemy out of someone who you could be dealing with work wise or personally

  • So, make sure that you do not antagonize people with your behavior, your speech or your

  • actions. So, that is antagonistic for you, fairly long and loaded but yes

  • it has a very very relevant meaning if you use it you'll come across as

  • somebody who's really in control of their temper and their vocabulary. Moving on I

  • have 'Hopping mad'... sounds funny doesn't it? Well! it has nothing to do with being mad and it

  • has nothing to do with hopping or skipping or jumping, 'Hopping mad' is

  • somebody who is so angry that they might have to jump up and down up and

  • down just to calm themselves down or just to express their anger. So, I could say that - 'Hopping mad' means

  • jumping up and down with anger. When I was made to wait in the line for three whole hours

  • I was hopping mad, which means , I was jumping up and down in the line just to

  • kind of express my anger and let all that angry energy out. Well! that's what 'Hopping mad' means.

  • means. Moving on I have 'livid' for you,'livid' is a form of anger wherein you have lost all control

  • of your senses. So, complete loss of control due to anger

  • So, 'livid' is somebody who can slap you at any point, yell at you at any point

  • or do anything to you at any point, because they are so angry that they are unable to control themselves

  • So, well make sure you don't get any drill of it, because that's not safe for you

  • So, I could use 'livid' in a sentence and say something like - When I saw a little boy hit a

  • powerless little puppy, I was livid with rage, because you know what I'm not somebody who takes cruelty

  • to animals very very easily, I just detest it. So, well that's your usage for

  • 'livid' and I'm gonna go over the list one more time. There's 'Bitter' meaning seething and

  • resentful, 'Caustic' which means that satcastic, 'Boiling' which means extremely

  • angry. 'Aggravated' which means violently angry. 'Cheesed off'

  • which means getting angry very quickly. 'Ticked off' getting angry in an instant, just in the tick

  • of the clock. 'Vitriolic' meaning angry enough to criticize the other person

  • 'Antagonistic' meaning angry with opposing viewpoint . 'Hopping mad' - someone who's jumping

  • up n down with anger. and 'livid' which means someone losing complete control

  • due to anger. So, well these are my list of words used to describe anger make

  • sure you get them right and they'll add a lot of value to your vocabulary and make sure you don't

  • practice any of these, because I don't see them coming off with very great and

  • positive effects but I really hope you enjoyed this and if you have someone

  • more words to add to my list

  • make sure you type in the comment box below

  • This is me 'Rima' saying bye and keep smiling , don't be angry.....
