Interjection Definition and Examples
An interjection is a cry or an exclamatory sound expressing anger, surprise, pleasure, happiness, sadness, or any other emotion. When writing, interjections are followed by an exclamation (!). The following section of the post describes more about interjection definition and examples.
Interjections are grammatically independent, which implies that they have no grammatical connection with the sentence.
Almost any part of speech can be used as an exclamation, such as,
Nonsense! I don’t believe it.
The following table details the list of the various types of interjections along with the categories they come under:
|Hurrah! (or Hurray!)||Joy|
|Hush! (or Shush! Or Ssh!)||Silence|
Lo and Behold!
