Lesson 19: Interjections

In this section, we will be discussing interjections and how they’re used in a sentence.


  • To define interjections
  • To enumerate the different ways in which interjections are used
  • To demonstrate how interjections are used in a sentence

Interjections are used to liven up a paragraph or to convey great emotion. In this lesson, we’ll be looking at how interjections are used in a sentence and how they can add to the meaningfulness of a sentence.


An interjection is a word which conveys a strong emotion. It is usually punctuated by an exclamation point. It doesn’t have a functional use in a sentence.

While interjections may not have a set function in a sentence, they do have quite a number of common uses. They can be used to convey emotion, to call attention, to respond fervently or to convey hesitation. Listed below are a few examples.


To convey emotion

Jeez! You didn’t have to hit me!

Ow! He hit my arm!

To call attention

Hey, you!

Go! Run after him, quick!

To respond fervently

No, I would never!

To convey hesitation



In this lesson, we learned about interjections. We were able to find out that while interjections don’t have a function within a sentence, they are very important when communicating strong feelings (even when those are feelings of hesitation). We also found out how to punctuate interjections and how to use them in a sentence.
