i'm trying to do this for german!
no idea either! maybe it's calm?


I believe the opposite to angry is placid. It fits quite well, but I suppose is not an exact opposite or very 'popular emotion'.
Many just think of happy as the opposite for both angry and sad- but how can 1 emotion be an opposite for 2 totally different emotions? That just doesn't make enough sense to me.

rae reich

Happy is to sad as angry is to sanguine. I should know, I was married to one.
Doesn't anyone use their Thesaurus anymore?
