Is this sentence correct: "It is not the words that angered me as much as the way you used them".
I want to mean that I got angry more because of the way you used the words than the words themselves.
Actually while asking it I came across one more problem. "Do I need to use get with angry? or is angry a verb?" For example:
I angered or I got angry. Which one of the above is correct?
Earlier I used to use the latter one (get angry) but once I came across a news published in hindustan times (an Indian daily) in which the former one(angered) was used. I cannot provide a link to the news since the news is a couple of day old and I don't have the edition.
