Interjection

Summary

An interjection is a word that expresses strong emotion.

Article

Interjections usually appear at the beginning of a sentence or clause and are grammatically disconnected from the rest of the sentence. As in many languages, interjections are often “natural sounds”, that is, vocal gestures or sounds that a person utters when experiencing certain emotions. Interjections can be used to express both positive and negative emotions.

Glossary

An interjection is an exclamation, added to a sentence for emphasis (e.g., o!, woe!)
