to send out — such as sound or light
  • They weren't yells, or howls, or shouts, or whoops, or yawps, such as you'd expect from a manly set of vocal organs—they were simply indecent, terrifying, humiliating screams, such as women emit when they see ghosts or caterpillars.
  • Just then we heard a kind Of war-whoop, such as David might have emitted when he knocked out the champion Goliath.
