    "If you guys need me just yell. I'll be around."

    Do we use "yell" with any prepositions? In this context it would mean ask for help.

    Re: yell

    Well, in this context, "yell" still means shout. It's just saying to shout and get the man's attention because he will be nearby.

    As for prepositions, I'm not sure. I can think of situations where you can use something similar like "shout" as a direct object.

    "If you need me, give me a shout/holler. I'll be around."
