Do you know that feeling when you feel like nothing is going the way you want to? Or you are just mad at somebody?

In Spanish it’s called enfurecido and it means furious or enraged. Let's see some examples:

  • ¡No pisen las flores de mi jardín! gritó la mujer enfurecida.

             “Don't step on my garden's flowers” shouted the furious woman.

 

  • Los clientes enfurecidos reclamaban su dinero en el banco.

             Enraged customers claimed back their money in the bank.

 

You can also say that the sea is enfurecido!

  • El mar enfurecido hizo que la pequeña embarcación se hundiese.

            The raging sea caused the small boat to sink.

 

A synonymn of enfurecido is rabioso, and this song from Shakira is called just like that: 'Rabiosa'.

Pronunciation:

ehm-foo-reh-thee-doh
