Interjections

An interjection is a word which is added to a sentence to convey an emotion or a feeling such as surprise, unhappiness, disgust, happiness, excitement, or enthusiasm

An interjection is not grammatically related to any other part of the sentence.

Interjections are the words used to express strong feeling or sudden emotion. They are included in a sentence mostly at the start, to express the sentiments or feelings such as surprise, disgust, unhappiness, joy, excitement, or enthusiasm.

Examples of interjections:

  • Hey! We won the game.
  • Wow! What a game!
  • Good! You have done an excellent job.
  • Ouch! That really hurt.

Yes and No: Sometimes, in a sentence, the introductory expressions such as yes, no, indeed, and well are also categorized as interjections.

Examples:

  • Indeed, it’s too cold here today.
  • Yes, I do like to answer this question.
  • No, go away now.
  • Well, it is too late; I should go home and spend some quality time with my family.

Phew : Some interjections are not words; they are actually a type of sound.

Examples:

  • Phew! I am not trying that again, it’s too hard to compete with you.
  • Humph! I knew that you are not participating in the match.
  • Hmm! Convey my compliments to the winner.
  • Ah! Don’t say that I am a worst cook!
