Lesson 8: Recognizing Interjections

1. An INTERJECTION is an exclamatory word that is not related with the other words in the sentence.

2. An exclamation point is usually used after an interjection, but a comma maybe used after a mild interjection.

  • Hurrah! The war is over.
  • Boy, did he hit the ball?
  • Well, what do you know about that?

  • Oh
  • Ouch
  • Hey
  • My
  • You see
  • Behold
  • Lo
