Synonyms: cry, weep, wail, bawl, keen2, sob, blubber1
These verbs mean to express strong emotion, such as grief, misery, or pain, by shedding tears or making inarticulate sounds. Cry and weep both involve the shedding of tears: "She cried without trying to suppress any of the noisier manifestations of grief and confusion" (J. D. Salinger). "I weep for what I'm like when I'm alone" (Theodore Roethke).
Wail and bawl refer to loud sustained utterance, as in grief, misery, or fear: "The women ... began to wail together; they mourned with shrill cries" (Joseph Conrad). "Her voice was always hoarse. Her Dad said this was because she had bawled so much when she was a baby" (Carson McCullers).
Keen refers more specifically to wailing and lamentation for the dead: "It is the wild Irish women keening over their dead" (George A. Lawrence).
Sob describes weeping or a mixture of broken speech and weeping marked by convulsive breathing or gasping: "sobbing and crying, and wringing her hands as if her heart would break" (Laurence Sterne).
Blubber refers to noisy shedding of tears accompanied by broken or inarticulate speech: "When he drew out what had been a fiddle, crushed to morsels in the greatcoat, he blubbered aloud" (Emily Brontë).
