    I feel angry/ I am angry

    "I feel angry/I am angry." Both are correct ?

    Yes, including: I get angry/It made me angry.

    Are both correct? In English, questions start with a question word. (at least in formal written English)

    Re: I feel angry/ I am angry

    At least in some contexts, "I get angry." does not have the same meaning as 'I (am)(feel) angry.'

    'are' is not a question word. It is the operator in the sentence. There is no question word for yes-no questions.

    Hello Kondorosi,

    I am not a teacher, but I would like an explanation about your reply. What do you mean by 'operator'?

    I have learned that the verb 'to be' is an auxialiary, and in this case when you ask a question, you must put it before the subject, (E.g: Am I right?).

    See you later and thanks in advance for your explanation.

    An operator is the first auxiliary verb of a verb phrase. It shows person and tense. Not all sentences have an auxiliary and an operator. That is why we resort to do-support in those cases. Interrogative yes-no questions are invariably introduced by an operator. Operators are not question words.

    I will have been doing this for a long time. -- will is the operator

    Will you have been... ?

    I like you. -- there is no operator

    The interrogative form with do-support is:

    Do I like you? Yes.

    Smile Re: I feel angry/ I am angry

    Hi,

    I understand what do you mean, but If I write :

    Both are correct ? (With the exclamation mark you must put the operator before the subject).

    Both are correct. (Without the exclamation mark, it is correct now).

    See you later.
