Interjection Worksheets

What are Interjections?

Interjections are on of the eight different parts of speech. According to some grammarians, they are the least part of speech. The reason is that there is no need to clear the meaning of the sentence. We use interjection to express the emotions while writing anything in English language. They are in abrupt and exclamatory way. It is the source to express feelings in a word or two. If we are using interjections in a sentence, it doesn't mean it relates to other parts of the sentence. We can't understand the relation between words and phrases in the sentences. Authors rarely use interjections in academic or formal writing. But they excessively use it in fiction or artistic writing. We usually offset by an exclamation point to show the emotion. How can we use interjections? We can use interjections at the beginning, in the middle, at the end of the sentence. Sometime we have to stand it alone sentences on their own. Sentence beginning – Authors commonly use it at the sentence beginning. We denote it with a punctuation mark to express emotions of the characters. We call it exclamation point. Examples, Wow! Middle or end of the sentence – We can also use it where we need to show a bit of feeling and emotion. For example, sometimes we use 'huh' to express confusion.
