To weep loudly, to cry or bawl, to lament or mourn for someone.

To cry out, usually in grief.
The wind was howling outside that night. At about midnight, we heard a woman wailing, broken by occasional sobs. We knew instantly that it was the banshee. We knew then that one of us would soon die.

As I was locking up for the night, I heard a little girl somewhere in the building, and she was wailing. Following the sound into into the women's room, I saw a little girl of about four, her face flushed from crying. As I walked towards her, she disappeared. Was this my imagination or had I seen a ghost?
