    Dear teachers,
    Could you explain to me what the expression 'raise a loud cry against something' means?
    I'll be really grateful for your kind help.

    As is so often the response to your questions...

    Do you have a context please? I have two different mental pictures of the sentence!

    Thank you RonBee:) You must be reading my mind:)
    Next time I will try to give the context to the phrase, but I just didn't want to influence (maybe badly) your explanation. Thank you once again:)
