- incense, anger, enrage, madden
- 1.从“(使)愤怒”的程度上说：anger表示的是各种程度的“怒”; enrage和incense则到了发火的程度,即“大怒”; madden语气最强,即“狂怒”。
- 2.从“(使)愤怒”的原因上说：anger最普通,可以是当怒的,也可以是不当怒的; incense指被过分的事物所激怒; enrage指被逗弄等所激怒; madden则主要指受到侮辱而发怒。
- 3.从表现上说：anger的怒可外露,也可隐藏于心中; 其余几个词则多有明显的外部表现。例如:
- Her words angered him very much.她的话使他生气极了。
- He was incensed by her casual attitude to his mother's death.见到她对他母亲的去世那么漫不经心,他气坏了。
