There's something that feels almost undignified about aiiiiieeee! Yarghhhh! or whatever variant you use.
Are not screams, by their primal nature, inherantly undignified expressions of shock or terror?
Is it a worthy goal to sanitise something raw and heartfelt in all forms of telling a story?
I can see simply using description if you are narating in a third person perspective, or if a character is recalling a past event. That is the proper continuity of style.
