a sharp high-pitched cry (especially by a dog)
bark in a high-pitched tone;
"the puppies yelped"
- The dog gave a yelp when I trod on its paw.
- She let out a yelp of pain.
- She jumped back with a little yelp of surprise.
- The dog yelped and ran away.
Writers yelp vainly when directors muscle in on their screen credits.出自：Publishers Weekly
