The difference between mad and crazy. These words are synonyms? Are they interchangeable?

To describe an eccentric mental state somewhere on a spectrum from mentally ill through to merely goofy and playful, you can use "mad" and "crazy" more or less interchangeably. "Crazy" is the softer option, possibly because "mad" is also used as a synonym for "angry".

I just wanted to say that Americans don't use "mad" to mean not right in the head. We use it when we are angry about something. We crazy or loco or mental if someone is not right in the head.

Mad, especially as manifested in wild or aggressive behaviour.<ul class="semb" style="margin: 0px 0px 32px; padding: 0px; list-style: none;"><li style="margin: 0px 0px 19px; padding: 0px 0px 0px 24px;">
