SPECIAL VOCABULARY LINK: EMOTIONS

"Emotions" is a more advanced way of saying "feelings." They are strong feelings which cause a reaction when we experience love, hate, fear, joy, sorrow, etc. They often cause a change in one's body like increased heartbeat, harder breathing, crying, sweating, or maybe shaking.
