Wanna Throw Up?

rogersgeorge on January 24th, 2017

Remember, this is a writing and grammar site, not a political one, but I see this word misused so often, I want to point out when someone (Ed Gamble) uses it correctly. The word is nauseated.

“Nausea” is the feeling of wanting to throw up. “Nauseated” means “to feel like throwing up.” “Nauseous” means “causing nausea.”

So don’t be nauseous by misusing that word and making me feel nauseated.
