adjective: furious

angry01

Today’s adjective is “furious”. It is used when we want to say someone is very, very angry about something. For example:

I was furious when I found out that my brother had borrowed my car without asking me.

All the employees are furious about that paycut. Many of them are saying they want to quit their jobs.

My father was furious about his boss making him work overtime on the weekend of his birthday.

The preposition “about” must be used after “furious” if it is followed by a noun or by -ing. Also, the word “furious” is very strong in meaning, so it is unnatural to say “very furious”. Sometimes people will say “really furious”, but usually people will use the adjective by itself.
