Definition • Interjections are the final part of speech (we’re done!) • An interjection has no grammatical function. An interjection is usually a word or group of words used to express a strong emotion.
Examples • Ouch! I just stubbed my toe. • Yes! I can’t believe we won the game. • Well, that didn’t go as good as I expected it to. • Shoot! I forgot my homework.
Practice • Yeah! Are you guys going to be there, too? • Aw, I’m sorry to hear that. • You have no idea what it’s like. Ugh. • I know, but, well, I just don’t want to.
