English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. yell(v)

    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.

    Synonyms:
    bawl, bellow, call, clamor, cry (out), ejaculate, exclaim, roar, scream, shout, shriek, vociferate

    Antonyms:
    be silent, be still, hark, hearken, hush, list, listen

How to use yell in a sentence?

  1. Jessica Walter:

    But it's hard because honestly, Jason Bateman -LRB- @batemanjason -RRB- says this happens all the time, in like almost 60 years of working, I've never had anybody yell at me like that on a set. And it's hard to deal with, but I'm over it now.

  2. Sharon Silver:

    When you yell or punish, you shift a child’s focus. His focus moves from what he’s done, to retreating inward to protect himself from the intensity of the yelling and punishing.

  3. Tiffany Hendra:

    We're like sisters. You yell and then you're like, ‘I love you. I'm sorry,’ but I would never put my hands on someone. And when that did happen, of course, I know that Bravo does not condone that… For us, I think that you will probably never see physical stuff that's happened in some of the ‘Housewives’ shows.

  4. Jordan Peele:

    I used to go to the movie theater and watch horror movies and you know black people, we yell s --- at the screen, i ’d go watch like a Freddy movie and you ’d hear people saying s --- like, ‘ Oh, b ----, get out of the house ’ or ‘ No. no, no -- don’t walk backwards ! ’ or ‘ You’re white -- call the cops ! ’ I got it in my head that there was a missing piece of the conversation. There was a film that we were asking for, begging for that was n’t there for us.

  5. Lois McMaster Bujold:

    If you're trying to take a roomful of people by surprise, it's a lot easier to hit your targets if you don't yell going through the door.
