Etymology

From Middle English anger (grief, pain, trouble, affliction, vexation, sorrow, wrath), from Old Norse angr, ǫngr (affliction, sorrow), from ang, ǫng (troubled), from Proto-Germanic {{gem-pro|*angazaz||grief, sorrow}}, from Proto-Indo-European {{ine-pro|*amǵʰ-||narrow, tied together}}. Cognate with Danish [[anger#|anger]] (regret, remorse), Swedish [[ånger#|ånger]] (regret), [[angur#|angur]] (trouble), Old English ange, enge (narrow, close, straitened, constrained, confined, vexed, troubled, sorrowful, anxious, oppressive, severe, painful, cruel), [[Angst#|Angst]] (anxiety, anguish, fear), Latin {{la|angō||squeeze, choke, vex}}, Albanian ang (fear, anxiety, pain, nightmare), Avestan {{ Template:Ae/script |[[angra#Template:Ae|angra]]|face=term|lang=ae}} (destructive), Ancient Greek {{ Template:Grc/script |ἄγχω|face=term|lang=grc}} (I squeeze, strangle), Sanskrit अंहु (aṃhu, anxiety, distress). Also compare {{en|anguish}}, {{en|anxious}}, {{en|quinsy}}, and perhaps to {{en|awe}} and {{en|ugly}}. The word seems to have originally meant “to choke, squeeze”.[1]
