Feel

noun; zero derivation
A specific emotion
 
This word was created to be used in the phrase “I feel your feel” which probably comes from the more common phrase “I feel your pain.” The word “feel” was used specifically for the sake of parallelism, as it has the exact same form as the verb to feel. Since it is so new, the speaker probably meant it to sound a little silly. She may have even meant to poke fun at the phrase “I feel your pain” because it has become so cliche. The word “feel” already exists as a noun but has a different meaning. It can be used to mean the sense of something, but not refer to a specific emotion as it does in this case.
Etymology : The verb “feel” is converted into the noun “feel”
