English Collocations with Emotions

😶 TO HIDE YOUR EMOTIONS

Meaning: to not display your emotions in public

So people hide their emotions in many different ways. How do you hide your emotions? People just put on a brave face and smile and don’t let people see how exactly they’re feeling. So they get bad news, they take a deep breath and they just smile and they they walk away.

Example:

You have to hide your emotions because as a society we don’t really accept any negative feelings.

😫 TO BE OVERCOME WITH EMOTION

Meaning: so this is quite the opposite to hide your emotions. To be overcome with emotion means that you can no longer hide it. It comes out in different ways by crying, by screaming, or some other visible effect.

Example:

He was overcome with emotion when he heard the news of the passing off his favourite grandmother.

He was overcome with emotion when his wife told him that she was leaving him.

🤩 OVERWHELMING EMOTION

Meaning: is an emotion that takes over and it spreads around the crowd

Overwhelming is something that overcomes us, takes control, overwhelming emotion, and it can be positive or can be negative. The signs or the noise of overwhelming emotion, people clapping, people singing, people, shouting, people screaming.

Example:

There were signs of overwhelming emotion in the crowd when they heard the news that he had survived.

🤫 PENT-UP EMOTIONS

Meaning: so when we have pent up, this is emotion that is building up inside. Something’s going to happen. It is building up inside, very like a volcano and then it explodes. Somebody can no longer keep it in.

Example:

Remember, you are not alone in this and sometimes you just need to vent to get rid of those pent-up emotions.

😱 TO SHOW THEIR EMOTIONS

Meaning: to demonstrate your emptions in many different ways. You can do it through your body. Language can show your emotions or disgust. You show your emotions of excitement, of love or hatred. All of those emotions that I’ve mentioned previously.

Example:

Nowadays people are encouraged to show their emotions and to let their emotions out. If they want to cry, they cry. If they want to scream, they scream.

🤪 RAW EMOTION

Meaning: when something raw it’s like a piece of meat, it’s uncooked; raw is something that has not been controlled.

Example:

The whole thing of boxing is to play on the raw emotions of the crowd.

English Collocations with Emotions

Of course, we can 🤣 BE FULL OF EMOTION

Meaning: to show or feel strong emotions, particularly happiness or sadness

We can be full of tears. We can be full of happiness. We could be full of sadness. Whatever the emotion is, we are full of it, meaning we are ready to explode. We are ready to to share it with others if they if they will let us.

Example:

Oh, I can’t talk to you now. I’m just so full of emotion that the story was so gripping.

And then finally, 😮 TO BE CHOKED WITH EMOTION

Meaning: when you’re choked, it means that you can’t express. You can’t talk. You can’t get your feelings out because it’s still inside. It’s still raw.

Example:

I don’t know. I can’t talk, please leave me alone. I’m choked with emotion and hardly able to speak. I have to deal with it in my own way, and later on I will be able to discuss it with you.
