ANGER!


Today's Transparent Language "Spanish Word of the Day" is "la ira", which is translated to "anger". My grandparents from Puerto Rico used "enojo" instead. Which word - if either - is used more commonly in Mexico?

Coraje, enojo is also popular.

Encabronado is a vey raw (vulgar) but also popular expression.

My Harper Collins Unabridged Dictionary translates "anger" as "ira", but adds that "words spoken in anger" would be "palabras pronunciadas en un momento de enfado" in Spain, while in Latin America, it offers "palabras pronunciadas en un momento de enojo". Translating" ira" back to English, the dictionary lists "anger" or "rage".

I'm leaning toward enojo myself, if for no other reason than that it reminds me of the English word "annoyed".

Ira is even closer to the English word 'Ire'. They must have a Latin root.
