  1. shoutverb

    To call is to send out the voice in order to attract another's attention, either by word or by inarticulate utterance. Animals call their mates, or their young; a man calls his dog, his horse, etc. The sense is extended to include summons by bell, or any signal. To shout is to call or exclaim with the fullest volume of sustained voice; to scream is to utter a shriller cry; to shriek or to yell refers to that which is louder and wilder still. We shout words; in screaming, shrieking, or yelling there is often no attempt at articulation. To bawl is to utter senseless, noisy cries, as of a child in pain or anger. Bellow and roar are applied to the utterances of animals, and only contemptuously to those of persons. To clamor is to utter with noisy iteration; it applies also to the confused cries of a multitude. To vociferate is commonly applied to loud and excited speech where there is little besides the exertion of voice. In exclaiming, the utterance may not be strikingly, tho somewhat, above the ordinary tone and pitch; we may exclaim by mere interjections, or by connected words, but always by some articulate utterance. To ejaculate is to throw out brief, disconnected, but coherent utterances of joy, regret, and especially of appeal, petition, prayer; the use of such devotional utterances has received the special name of "ejaculatory prayer." To cry out is to give forth a louder and more excited utterance than in exclaiming or calling; one often exclaims with sudden joy as well as sorrow; if he cries out, it is oftener in grief or agony. In the most common colloquial usage, to cry is to express grief or pain by weeping or sobbing. One may exclaim, cry out, or ejaculate with no thought of others' presence; when he calls, it is to attract another's attention.

    Number one : Stay home if Anthony Fauci're sick. It's really, really dangerous ; other people may get sick. If Anthony Fauci're immunocompromised or if Anthony Fauci have a weakened immune system, if Anthony Fauci have any chronic diseases -- heart disease ; any of the respiratory diseases including asthma, emphysema, COPD ; diabetes -- stay home. If Anthony Fauci are obese, stay home. If Anthony Fauci're over 65, please stay home, if you do go, please wear a mask, physically distance yourself at least six feet from other people -- I know that's really hard to do -- and don't shout. And then once you leave the rally, quarantine yourself for two weeks.

  5. Alice Walker:
