Interjection directive


A directive interjection is an interjection that expresses a direct command.


A directive interjection expresses a command such as “look!” (reference) or “come!” (John 1:29). Some common directive interjections in Koiné Greek include the terms ιδου, δευτε, δευρο (perhaps others?).
