nouna short sharp cry, esp. of pain or alarm : she uttered a yelp as she bumped into a table.*
nouna large brown seaweed that typically has a long, tough stalk with a broad frond divided into strips. Some kinds grow to a very large size and form underwater “forests” that support a large population of animals.
* I've been 'bumping into tables' lately.
Ouch. Sometimes it helps to stand on the sand and yelp to kelp.
