    seasick

    A man is on a ship. He is feeling seasick. If he tells his friend, are the following sentences correct ?
    1. I am seasick.
    2. I feel seasick.
    3. I get seasick.
    4. I've got seasick.

    Is it correct for him to tell his friend"I got seasick" when he is now on a
    ship and feeling seasick.

    Many thanks.

    In the situation you expressed (the present) only 1 & 2 are possible.

    Many thanks.
    If he is feeling seasick at this moment in time, 1 and 2 are possible. #3 could be used if he is saying that he suffers from seasickness whenever he's on a ship. #4 doesn't work for me.
