What are interjections?

Interjections are words or phrases that are ‘injected’ into a sentence to stress strong feelings, sudden emotion or to grab one’s attention.

 

Examples and Use of Interjections

The following table illustrates how different interjections can be used.

 

Punctuation with interjections

When the interjection is mild, we can include it in a single sentence, separated from the rest of the words by a comma.

When we want to use a strong interjection, then it should stand alone and be followed by an exclamation mark (!).
