  2. Use form two when there's no possible ambiguity. In the example, there's only one scorpion present.
  3. Use form three or four when more information is needed to interpret the command - that is, there's more than one possible target by the same name to which the command could be applied. In the example, there's a blue statue, a red statue, etc.
  4. Use form three or four when more information is needed to interpret the command - that is, there's more than one possible target by the same name to which the command could be applied. In the example, there's a blue statue, a red statue, etc.

As is typical of most TriadCity commands, Yelp searches for <thing> in a specific order, starting with the room you're in, then your worn or wielded equipment, then your inventory. So, if there's a box in the room, and a box in your inventory, the command "yelp box" will refer to the one in the room, not your inventory. You'd need to use "yelp 2.box" for the latter.

Unlike certain other social commands, Yelp cannot be parameterized.
