Feeling Words / Emotion Words
Words Describing Feelings and Emotions

Here you will find part of the world's longest list of feeling words, (or emotion words or words that describe feelings). The full list is now over 4,000 words.

The words in letters A-S are shown here. We will send the complete file via email for your personal use for $5.00 (US). (Ordering Details). We will also send a free copy of the list to anyone who donates new words. Please write if you want to contribute a new word.

We now have a new list of over 600 words describing just the negative feelings, too.

We also have this list of Common Negative Feelings. See also this article about "Talking away your pain." These words are best used when applied to the concept of emotional literacy. Feeling words also help us reach emotional closeness.

* = Newly created words

Thanks to all the people who have contributed new words. I am sorry but it has proven impractical for me to name them all. A special thanks, though to Bob Myrick at the University of Florida. His list of 50 or so words was the first feeling words list I ever saw, or at least paid any attention to! It was in a book called Caring and Sharing: Becoming a Peer Facilitator. A book I recommend. (My notes from the book)
