No, no -- in American English (at least out here in California) when we ask how someone is feeling, it usually refers to their health. Of course we are lacking context here. If there had been a whole story about changes at Corinna's workplace and you asked, "How does Corinna feel about that?" it would obviously be asking her feelings about the new changes.
I personally think there's a difference in the meaning. If I say "How are you?" (or also "how are you doing"?) it's a greeting, if I ask "How do you feel?" I'm trying to know if you have an headache or something. I don't think you would greet someone with "How are you feeling?", it sounds too clinical.
I agree that "How are you/is he (doing)" is more general than "How are you/is he feeling". I would only use "feeling" when I'm specifically inquiring about health.
"How are you (doing)?" -- A general inquiry that is often used as a standard greeting and therefore tends to have a standard (as opposed to a real, honest) response.
"How are you feeling?" -- I'm aware that you've been ill and I'm expressing real concern and expect a real, honest answer.
There is a significant difference in greetings in Standard American English and in British English, though. In Standard American English, "Are you all right?" is only used in response to witnessing someone have a mishap. Maybe they walked into a pole, maybe they can't seem to stop coughing. In AAVE and British English, however "[(Are) you] all right?" is just a standard informal greeting.
Would the dative "ei," as in "Quomodo Corinna ei habet?" translate similarly to the reflexive "se"? Figuring these literal translations has my brain in a jumble. Would one ever use the dative case with the verb "habeo" in reference to states of feeling (How does Corinna hold for her), or only reflexive (How does Corinna hold herself)? Is habeo best left transitive?
Thanks everyone for making these lessons possible! Pretty helpful so far.
The course contributors can't think of every minor variation. The database of accepted answers is populated with the standard/most common ways of saying it, at least at the outset.
If you believe your answer has widespread enough usage to warrant being included, you can flag it after it marks you wrong (assuming you had no typos or extra spaces) and report "My answer should be accepted."
When you submit a bug report, there is an option to upload an image for the devs to refer to.
