This sentence makes me cringe. On behalf of most Americans I apologize to the world for our Dòmhnall.

I don't think a mere obh obh quite covers it.

Muirt might be up there.

There are other Donalds in the world. Give them their chance.

I wrote yelling instead of shouting and it was marked wrong. Was wondering if anyone knows a word for yelling specifically

Yelling and shouting seem synonymous to me, either should be accepted

Many dictionaries give glaodh for both shout and yell
