    envy

    2.) Do we have a word for "To provoke someone to envy"?


    2.) Ana has a chocolate cake. And she's teasing Bea of her cake. How would I put that in a sentence(informal)?

    Re: envy

    to "make someone jealous" might do.

    Mary had a piece of chocolate cake and showed Sue to make her jealous.

    You can't make someone have envy. They get that feeling themselves.

    Sue was envious after seeing the cake.
