Which verb fits better ? The football team is (shouting, yelling, screaming, shrieking) with joy after they have won the World Championship.

I agree with Tom that 'shrieking' doesn't work here. Shrieking is one of those sexist words which is nearly always applied to women. It suggests a shrill, unpleasant sound.

Hi Iris, good question. I would say all are possible, depending on how you want to describe it. I would say that "shrieking" would be the least common here, as it is often a more high-pitched sound with negative connotations. Well done. Tom
