    I hope this has somewhat helped you see the difference in the words. :)


    To add to the examples and clarify further...

    Angry and pissed off are both adjectives (strong negative feelings) and have a high intensity level.

    Irritated and annoyed are either adjectives (milder negative feelings more like something is bothersome rather than a big deal) or past tense verbs speaking about something or someone that brought this feeling about.

    Freak out is phrasal verb only and suggests that not only was a person very angry but they openly expressed it in a very strong way.
    Cheers ^^
