My mother was totally uncontrolled after quarrelling with a neighbour.
Is 'uncontrolled' correctly used here? If it isn't, what is the correct word that should be used?
Thanks in advance.
I think I said that "uncontrollable" would be o.k., as would "out of control" and that I believe "uncontrolled" is used to describe actions/behaviours or events more than people. It is odd that she is this way AFTER the quarrel! Perhaps she is inconsolable
