Hi, Ahmed,

@Ahmed.A.A posted:

Hi, I can understand that ''feel'' is a linking verb, so it can be followed by an adjective. Yet I have seen the following sentence: ''I feel anger when I miss my bus.'' Is it OK to use ''angry'' or ''anger'' after ''feel''?

Yes, both are OK. 'Feel' can be used as a linking verb followed by an adjective, and it can be used as a transitive verb followed by a noun. 'Feel angry' refers to your personal (internal) feelings, whereas 'feel anger' could refer to external anger, i.e. you feel the anger of other people or to your own feelings.
