What's the difference between an "uproar" and an "outrage"? Both mean anger and complaints over something that is considered unacceptable, right?
Does "be outraged" simply mean 'angry' or there's more to it?
Yes, I have. I understand them both to mean people being upset about something in a big way. I just don't know which one to use or if I can use them interchangeably (I recretly feel that's a no).
Just want to check what kind of things are more likely to cause an uproar and not an outrage.
And I also wanted to check if "outraged" is stronger than angry or not. I thought it was, but the dictionaries I checked don't say anything about the degree of anger. Or maybe it's not about the degree (angry-very angry)??
