- talking down to someone regardless of volume; you can berate or chastise someone, in a low tone of voice, and be yelling.
Now I don't agree with this, but it seems to me that a significant portion of people do. I suspect those that do grew up in a household where their primary caregivers were afraid of them, and hence are sensitive to the slightest reprimandation.

When my Italian mother yelled, the neighbors could hear - now that's yelling. (Don't do this to your kids - it can hurt them. But not standing up to your kids and establishing authority hurts the general population. I've had it up to here with these sensitives).
"I have to study in my dorm , because the librarian is always ''yelling' at me when I misbehave."

(Librarians don't yell - they'll get fired for raising their voice - cuz it's a library and you have to keep it down, see? ;)

A childish threat used by women, particularly when in environments that would cause embarrassment to the guy they are with. Most often used by girls who were only childs or who think of themselves as princesses.

Although it seems like a hollow threat, can be extremely effective. Often, however, leads to unhealthy relationships as the threat begins being used more and more often and for mundane things. Generally used when a girl thinks she has a lot of hand in a relationship.
Date 2 (appropriate use):
Guy: Hey babe, lets go to second base...
Girl: Stop taking my chastity bra off!
Guy: Come on babe, I want to make you queel.
Girl: I'm gonna yell!

Date 6 (mediocre use):
Girl: I want the last avocado bruschetta.
Guy: Let's split it.
Girl: I'm gonna yell.
Guy: Fine, have it.

Date 12 (inappropriate use):
Guy: I got you this flower babe.
Girl: WTF is this ugly ass daisy. I'm gonna yell.
Guy: No please don't! What do you want!? Anything!
