Started screaming when? He could be tired, hungry, bored, cold, wanting attention, discovering volume control. It could be any number of things. If he's just screaming for no apparent reason he's probably discovering his own voice and volume control and finds it funny. If he's starting to throw tantrums he's learning he can express frustration. Children's minds and comprehension develop before language, so at 14 months he might be thinking to himself "mom I'm starving" but he doesn't have the vocabulary to tell you this. Thus why many children seem frustrated or angry often. Or he could be thinking, whoa, what was that noise, that was loud... and do it again for entertainment. Either way see if you can figure out what those screams mean, and then you can handle the situation accordingly.
