From the verb exacerbate comes the adjective that concerns us now. And the aforementioned verb has its origin in Latin, since it derives from “exacerbare”, which can be translated as “irritate” and which was formed by the union of two very well defined lexical components:
-The prefix “ex-“, which means “out”.
-The term “acerbus”, which is synonymous with “sour”.
He who is exacerbated, therefore, feels angry, irritated, or upset. Other synonyms of this word that occupy us are angry, angry, pissed off, enraged, enraged or exasperated. Among its antonyms we can highlight calm, calm, relaxed or calm.
