Interjection

Interjection is a word that denotes or expresses emotion or sentiment in a sentence. They sometimes stand by themselves, but they are often contained within larger structures.

Examples: alas, woah, shucks, woops, gee

  • Wait! I forgot my wallet.
  • Wow! You have a big house.

An interjection is grammatically distinct from the rest of the sentence. They may express disgust, pain, joy, assent, delight, sorrow, and so forth. They are generally set off from the rest of the sentence by exclamation points. An entire sentence, however, may be exclamatory. If the exclamatory, the interjection is followed by a comma and the exclamation point is placed at the end of the sentence.

The Proper Use of “O” and “Oh”

The interjection “O” is used only before a noun in direct address. It is not directly followed by an exclamation point. “Oh” is used to express surprise, sorrow, or joy. It is followed by an exclamation point unless the emotion continues throughout the sentence.

  • Oh! There you are.
  • O God! Help me please!
