I am elation/I have elation/I have joyful. - which one is the best?
- ZapataLv 61 month agoFavourite answer
The first and third of these phrases are just incorrect and grammatically wrong.
The second, "I have elation", is grammatically correct - but it would be an unusual and awkward phrase, and would not be used by English language speakers in any normal situation, unless perhaps they were writing poetry!
We would usually say "I am elated", or "I am joyful" .

I feel elated or I am elated. I feel joyful or am joyful. Generally, we don't use am and have with those expressions (words).

I'm sorry but native speakers wouldn't use any of them.
I'm elated / joyful!I feel elated / joyful!I'm full of joy!I'm thrilled! I'm delighted!
"I have elation" is grammatically correct, but nobody would use it.

"Elation" is a noun, not an adjective. Use it after "have". The adjective is "elated"- use that with "be" "Joyful" is also an adjective. You can look words up at dictionary.com, but you can also tell by the endings. "tion" is a noun ending; "ful" is an adjective ending. The past participles of most verbs can be used as adjectives.
I am elated.
I am joyful.
I have elation- grammatical, but unusual.

'I have elation' is the only one that is correct, and it isn't what most native English speakers would say. They'd say 'I am elated'.

None. I am elated or I am joyful.
