Synonyms of "Grumpy" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between grumpy and sullen and morose and surly and somber ?
A: Grumpy is being in a bad mood and angry, but not violently.
“He was grumpy because he didn’t get the presents he wanted for his birthday”

Sombre/somber is a feeling of sadness or of a low mood
“The dark clouds and the heavy rain gave the city a rather sombre feel”

Sullen is a mix between the two, angry and sad at the same time.
“She was sullen after she was shouted at by her boss”

I can’t say I know what the other two mean, not sure I’ve ever heard those said in conversation.
Q: What is the difference between He’s grumpy. and He’a being grumpy. ?
A: I'd say they basically mean the same thing on their own. In a sentence like "My brother had a bad day and now he's grumpy." it makes more sense to use 'he's grumpy' because you just explained why he's in that state. 'He's being grumpy' works better if you don't know the reason why someone is grumpy.
Q: What is the difference between grumpy and grouchy ?
A: Grumpy can be used for people who are sleepy, irritated or simply unhappy or upset.

"Akachan should sleep because she's grumpy."

Grouchy can be used for people who are angry and/or irritated and show it on other people.

"Senpai, don't speak to the boss right now he's grouchy."

However, the difference between the two words is so subtle that it wouldn't really matter which you used in a certain situation.
Q: What is the difference between grumpy and cranky ?
A: The difference is:
- if you don't get enough sleep, or don't have your coffee, people call you "cranky"
- if you're just in a bad mood, people call you "grumpy".

The "if I were to specify a difference, I'd probably say" is me being vague because I'm not too sure. かもしれない sort of thing. =P
