  1. to howl, to whine
  2. (somewhat informal) to weep, to cry

Usage notes[edit]

Whether the verb is informal in the sense of “to weep” depends on the context and the intensity of the weeping. Very generally speaking, it is informal for normal (sad) weeping, but not for very intense (desperate) weeping or when referring to small children.
