    No, Verbal abuse and emotional abuse are often used interchangeably, but while they might overlap, they are two different forms of abuse with distinct characteristics.
    Verbal abusers use language to hurt someone. This may involve speaking aggressively or violently, or it could mean not saying a single word.

    Meanwhile, emotional abuse involves hurtful tactics that are rooted in one’s emotions to manipulate and mistreat the victim.

    Emotional abuse often includes harsh criticism, humiliation, and control.
    If the abuse is primarily characterized by the use of language to tear a victim down, it’s probably verbal abuse; if verbal abuse is one of many tactics used against a victim, it’s likely emotional abuse instead.
