    get/become

    1) She's getting angry. (She's on the way to a state of angriness.) :? -->
    2) She becomes angry. (She is already angry.)

    Is that right?

    Hello Blacknomi!

    I agree with you on 1). I would use "she is angry" for 2).

    She becomes angry when people are rude to her (habit, though get would be better here)
