The Interjection


An interjection is a part of speech that expresses strong or sudden emotion, often appearing as a single word or a short phrase.

Interjections are used to convey feelings or reactions and are typically set apart from the rest of the sentence with exclamation marks or commas.

Here are some examples of interjections:



Wow! – used to express amazement or admiration.

Wow! That’s an incredible view!



Oh no! – used to express surprise or concern.

Oh no! I forgot my keys at home.



Yikes! – used to show fear or alarm.

Yikes! That was a close call.



Ouch! – used to express pain or discomfort.

Ouch! That hurt my finger.



Bravo! – used to show applause or approval.

Bravo! You did an excellent job.



Aha! – used to indicate a sudden realization or understanding.

Aha! Now I see what you mean.



Alas! – used to express sorrow, regret, or disappointment.

Alas! We missed the last train.



Phew! – used to show relief after a difficult or stressful situation.

Phew! I finally finished that project.



Hooray! – used to celebrate a success or achievement.

Hooray! We won the game.



Well – used to pause and gather one’s thoughts or indicate hesitation.

Well, I’m not sure what to do next.



Interjections are versatile and can be used to add emotion, emphasis, or spontaneity to a sentence.

They often stand alone and don’t have a grammatical connection to the rest of the sentence.
