Connecting A Word To A Feeling

1st Question:

What is the definition of “feeling?” Merriam-Webster defines feeling as “an emotional state or reaction.”

2nd Question

What is the definition of “emotion?” Merriam-Webster defines emotion as “a conscious mental reaction (such as anger or fear) subjectively experienced as strong feeling usually directed toward a specific object and typically accompanied by physiological and behavioral changes in the body.”

In my opinion, a human chooses to connect a feeling to a word. If the human removes the feeling then it’s a word without the power to hurt you.

3rd Question

What is the definition of “hurt?” Merriam-Webster defines hurt as “to cause emotional pain or anguish.”

So, in some cases, there are nicknames that cause emotional pain to others. Another example is when someone uses a specific word to describe a physical appearance. Furthermore, combining several words can create a negative sentence that can cause emotional pain.
