Does this only include single words, or does it include times when one word in a sentence is shouted? Specifically, in a recent episode of Warehouse 13 one of the characters uses the line "I think we should RUUUUUNNNN!", with only the last word being shouted. I know I've seen this used elsewhere as well, fairly often actually. Does it fit in here?

Slade's 'it's CHRISTMAS!' fits nowhere else as really the 'it's' isn't part of the shout but if you shout 'Christmas' by itself it makes no sense. It doesn't fit in any of the subtropes and as a Slade fan this troper demands it be put somewhere in the shouting. Tis not a This Is Sparta

It should be clear in the description, but sentences should not be allowed, even if only one word is shouted.

It seems to me that a lot of these examples probably belong on Say My Name.

It belongs on both. If Say My Name were a Sub-Trope, it would apply. But it's a Sister Trope, and they fit on both pages.

A listing on Canonical List of Subtle Trope Distinctions would probably help.
