Linguistic Linguine With Anger Sauce [Aug. 27th, 2008|04:20 pm]

What is the language of anger other than a recitation of socially inappropriate nouns and verbs?

Echoing others: there's hurtfulness, and there's deliberate hurtfulness, and there's the air of "I'm being careful not to give in to the impulse to be hurtful", and there's the deliberate air of yadda yadda. All of that is what I would call the language of externally directed anger.

Then there's the language of internally directed anger - pain, and injury, and twisting of various sorts.

There's also what I would think of as the in-the-moment anger, which is much more about specific actions.
