Sometimes it’s hard to explain exactly how you feel. This handy vocabulary wheel helps you narrow down exactly what word best expresses your current emotional state.
Whether you’re writing or talking about a character, another person, or yourself, it can be easy to use the same words over and over. This wheel diagram from English teacher Kaitlin Robbs helps you find the right word for the right feeling from the inside out. Start out with a basic emotion and then move outward until you have the best synonym for the job. The wheel itself isn’t exactly groundbreaking in the world of vocabulary, but it’s a nice reference for those that have a hard time being specific about how they or others feel.
