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

  • 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!


Examples of Interjections


YES OR NO?!

  • Yes, no, and indeed are also considered interjections.

  • Yes, this is a mother lion carrying her cub to safety.

  • No, she is not trying to eat him.

  • Indeed, it is easy to see why you would think that.


Sounds Good to Me!

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

    • Ex: EEEEKKK! That was terrifying!

      Argh, the car won’t start!

      Awww, that lion cub was sweet.

      They will never see this coming, MUAHAHA!
