The rarely-used word "hanger" was first used in 1918. The word is a combination of the words "hungry" and "angry". It means to be bad tempered because of hunger. It's making a comeback because of research that says "hanger" is a real feeling. "Hangriness" could be a real medical condition. Scientists looked at how hunger affects our daily feelings. A professor said there was a strong link between hunger and feelings of anger or low pleasure.

The researchers analysed surveys from 64 volunteers. Participants used a smartphone app to log their feelings five times a day for 21 days. Researchers got real-time information on feelings at the time of hunger. The professor said there was a strong link between hunger and emotions. He said: "Feeling hungry is associated with greater anger…and lower levels of pleasure." He added that if people know they are hangry, they could control their anger.
