Take a test for yourself with overwhelmed vs. overwhelming:
- Last night I stayed at the office until 8 p.m. It was an overwhelming night!
- After the performance, the crowd applauded for over 5 minutes. The orchestra’s conductor was overwhelmed by the respect.
- The last time I was here was over 20 years ago. I can’t believe how many overwhelming changes have occurred here since then.
- Working at this company is an overwhelming challenge.
- We were so overwhelmed by this project that we didn’t even get a chance to eat lunch!
