shout? yell? they bring the following words to my mind : ''shout,yell,cry and scream''

 

These verbs describe the different kinds of loud noise people make when they are angry, frightened or upset. People shout when they are angry or want to get somebody's attention:

 

e.g: He always seems to be shouting at the kids these days. / I can hear you - there's no need to shout.

 

Yell can also be used, especially in spoken English.Cry with this meaning now sounds old-fashioned.

 

When people scream they make a very loud, high noise because they are in great pain or are very frightened or excited:

e.g: There was broken glass everywhere and people were screaming.

 

You can also use these words with 'out':


She shouted out in pain as they tried to move her.

 

wrathfully LBT
