Student or Learner
When a person swallows air and he/she gets tummy ache and his/her belly is bigger than usual, which one of these two verbs would you use?
Thank you in advance for your always valuable help.
There is a case in some company to use the word 'aerophagy'; but don't try this at home!
PS A friendlier expression to use is 'to feel bloated'.

Another vote for "bloated."
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
