    What is the difference between angry and annoyed?

    I am angry with him.
    I am annoyed with him.

    When do you say you are annoyed with someone and you are angry with someone?

    "Angry" sounds stronger than "annoyed", amby. "Annoyed" generally expresses mild anger. "Angry" works better to express strong anger.
