#FixItFriday : Nauseous

Nauseous = adjective = descriptive word = ability to make one sick to one’s stomach

The roller coaster ride was nauseous.

The oozing rash is nauseous.

Nauseated = verb = action word = having been made sick to your stomach

I was nauseated after riding the roller coaster.

I was nauseated after treating the oozing rash I got at summer camp.

Use the right word and I promise to not correct you under my breath in the presence of mixed company.  My doing so may be nauseous and make you nauseated.
