Anger, masculine, ‘paddock, grass plot,’ from Middle High German anger, Old High German angar, masculine, ‘pasture land, grass plot, arable land’; allied to Old Icelandic eng, enge, ‘meadow, pasture ground.’ The cognates can scarcely be derived from enge, ‘narrow’ (Teutonic root ang). Trustworthy correspondences are wanting.
