Adverb[edit]

emotionally (comparative more emotionally, superlative most emotionally)

  1. In an emotional manner; displaying emotion.
    • 2012 March-April, Jan Sapp, “Race Finished”, American Scientist, volume 100, number 2, page 164: 
      Few concepts are as emotionally charged as that of race. The word conjures up a mixture of associations—culture, ethnicity, genetics, subjugation, exclusion and persecution. But is the tragic history of efforts to define groups of people by race really a matter of the misuse of science, the abuse of a valid biological concept?
  2. Regarding emotions.
    Physically, it was easy, but emotionally it was the hardest thing I've ever done.
