Why does she screech?

My daughter is 2 and all of a sudden she has started to screech...it is high pitched and makes my head hurt. She doesn't just do it when she is annopyed, but when shes angry, happy, sad, bored...in other words - most of the time! She does talk and can get across what she wants to ask...but I just wondered if anyone has any clue as to why she does it and possibly...how to help stop it!

treat it like any other bad behaviour. i tell my daughter she can be upset but she can't yell at me and if she keeps it up she can sit by herself (my version of time out i guess). if she's just doing it out of happiness, i would ask her to be quiet please (if she refuses to listen to you, revert back to the "bad behaviour" response, since not listening to mommy is bad behaviour)
