What are different types of interjections?


Interjections are usually words which express emotion. Many times, they stand by themselves in a sentence. This means they are usually cut off from the sentence by some sort of punctuation, usually a comma or exclamation point.

A good way to think about interjections is as emotional loners, as interjections are full of emotion, often when expressing a command or statement, and usually stand by themselves. A common example of an interjection occurs in an salutation, like "Hi!" Other examples are words like wow, oh and yes. According to English Club, another type of interjection is a hesitation device. These are words which indicate a speaker is thinking about what to say. Examples of hesitation devices are words like 'er' and 'um'. Other examples of interjections are ah, alas, dear, eh, hello, hey, hmm, ouch, uh, uh-huh and well. The most important rule to remember with interjections is context. The way an interjection is punctuated is directly determined by how it is being used. If an interjection is being used as a command or an exclamation, it must be separated from the rest of the sentence with an exclamation point. If an interjection is being used mildly, it should be separated with a comma.
