More details:


Could you say whether it's possible to use the word 'feverish' to describe somebody's relationships or not? For example, is it OK to say 'They had a feverish romance'? Or are there more common adjectives for 'romance'? 

And do you use the word 'hectical' in the modern English language? If you do, can a romance be hectical?

Thank you in advance!


Is 'feverish' a good word to describe 'romance'?

Additional info:

No, I wouldn't use it. It's very literary so OK in a literary context, using it for "ardent" or osmetihng else depending on the intended meaning. As for "hectical", never heard of it - "hectic" is fine.

You might use fervid or feverish instead for fevered for romance but that is more poetic or ironic than everyday usage. Hectic is fine too
