An interjection is a part of speech that helps you express feelings. There are two degrees of feelings - mild and strong. A mild interjection takes a comma after it, while a strong one takes an exclamation mark. Many a time, interjections are not actual words - but then, this doesn’t mean one can use any interjection anywhere.
Words that express some sudden feeling causing an exclamation are called Interjections. They may be:
Ex: Oh! it is here only.
Hello! How do you do?
Aha! I got it, I got it.
Rubbish! People queue up to use me.
Hurrah! We have won the race.
Ex: Ha! Ha! Ha! I am the most important person in the garden.
Help me out of this trouble, O God!
Ex: That was jolly good Fun! Shouted the children in a joyous mood.
What a nuisance! The teacher murmured.
Don’t disturb! My partner whispered.
Here are some interjections, this time used in the context of an accompanying sentence:
- Ahh, that feels wonderful.
- Alas! I'm lost in the wilderness.
- Bless you! I couldn't have done it without you.
- It's time for me to go. Cheerio!
- Congrats! You finally got your master's degree.
- Crikey! Do you ever think before you speak?
- Gesundheit! Are you starting to get a cold?
- Good grief! Why are you wearing shorts in the winter?
- Grrr. I'm going to get back at him for that.
- Humph. He probably cheated to make such good grades.
- Oh dear! I don't know what to do about this mess.
- Shoot! I forgot my brother's birthday.
- Well, duh! That was a stupid thing to do!
