    Verb that goes with "frightful, horrendous feeling"

    Discussion in 'Word Mechanics' started by Eddie Edward Edwardson, Jan 12, 2016.

    Hi all,

    I need a word that can replace "felt" in the following sentence: "Every traveler who came within a mile of the castle felt a frightful, horrendous feeling." Many thanks!

    Maybe a workaround?

    "Every traveler who came within a mile of the castle sensed a frightful, horrendous atmosphere."

    Was overcome by...

    Or make the horror and fear the actors of the sentence.

    Fear and dread filled every traveler who came within a mile of the castle.

    Making the nouns fear and dread the subject of the sentence and using the verb filled is a pretty elegant solution. Many thanks.
