The 'scream' group

These verbs indicate how something is said, for example how loudly or quickly, or at what pitch. Some verbs, such as wail and rasp also indicate the feeling that the speaker has (see also meaning group 5 below).
Most of these verbs are usually used in fiction rather than in journalism or conversation.
