What is an interjection

What is an interjection?

  • An interjection is a word used to express emotion.

  • It is usually grammatically separate from the sentence.

    • Ex: Wow! I wish this was my house.


Interjections in a sentence

Interjections in a Sentence

  • Because the interjection is unrelated to the other words in a sentence, it is usually separated by an exclamation point or comma(s).

    • Ex: Whoa. He definitely plays hockey.

      He may have lost seven teeth, but, wow, Duncan Keith was amazing in the third period!

Sounds good to me

Sounds Good to Me!

  • Some interjections are sounds you would make to express emotion.
