Kunstformen der Natur (1904) by Ernst Haeckel

A shout, scream, yell, shriek, hoot, holler, vociferation, outcry, or bellow is a loud vocalization in which air is passed through the vocal folds with greater force than is used in regular or close-distance vocalization. Though technically this process can be performed by any creature possessing lungs, the preceding terms are usually applied specifically to human vocalization. There are slight differences in meaning amongst them; for example, "scream" and "shriek" generally refer to a higher-pitched sound, and a "hoot" usually does not involve words.
