INTERJECTIONS

What is an interjection?

Interjections are special words that show strong feelings or emotions like excitement, happiness, horror, shock,
sadness, pain, anger, and disgust. Interjections usually come at the beginning of a sentence. You use them to add punch or energy to stories. Dont use them too much. When you overdo interjections, they lose their power. Sometimes interjections are just sounds, shouts, gasps, or exclamations, more like noises than regular words. Example:

Aha, All right, Godzooks, My Goodness, Gosh, Hello, Help, Hey, Hooray, Whoopee, Oh, Oh no, Ooops, Ouch, Super, Ugh, Well, Nuts, Wow, Yikes, Yoo-hoo, Right on, Yippee, Yuck.
