Transcript

  • 1.  
  • 2. <ul><li>Interjections are words that express emotion which are not grammatically related to the sentence. </li></ul><ul><li>They can show happiness (Yippee!), sadness (Awwww!), anger (Grrrr!), surprise (Holy cow!), or any other emotion </li></ul>
  • 3. <ul><li>unlike all of the other parts of speech, the interjection does not interact with any other words in the sentence . It does not modify anything, it does not get modified by anything. It does not play the role of subject or verb. </li></ul>
  • 4. <ul><li>A : aha, ahem, ahh, ahoy, alas, arrggg, aw </li></ul><ul><li>B : bam, bingo, blah, boo, bravo, brrr </li></ul><ul><li>C : cheers, congratulations </li></ul><ul><li>D : dang, drat, darn, duh </li></ul><ul><li>E : eeek, eh, encore, eureka, </li></ul><ul><li>F : fiddlesticks </li></ul><ul><li>G : gadzooks, gee, gee whiz, golly, goodbye, goodness, good grief, gosh </li></ul><ul><li>H : ha-ha, hallelujah, hello, hey, hmmmmmm, holy buckets, holy cow, holy smokes, hot dog, huh?, humph, hooray </li></ul>
  • 5. <ul><li>O : oh, oh dear, oh my, oh well, ooops, ouch, owww </li></ul><ul><li>P : phew, phooey, pooh, pow </li></ul><ul><li>R : rats </li></ul><ul><li>S : shhhhh, shoo </li></ul><ul><li>T : thanks, there, tut-tut </li></ul><ul><li>U : uh-huh, uh-oh, ugh </li></ul><ul><li>W : wahoo, well, whoa, whoops, wow </li></ul><ul><li>Y : yeah, yes, yikes, yippee, yo, yuck </li></ul>
  • 6. <ul><li>Hooray! We won! </li></ul><ul><li>Wow , I love your shirt. </li></ul><ul><li>Yuck! That tastes awful. </li></ul><ul><li>*** USE AN EXCLAMATION MARK (!) IF THE EMOTION IS STRONG*** </li></ul><ul><ul><li>WOW! I won the lottery! </li></ul></ul><ul><li>*** USE A COMMA (,) IF THE EMOTION IS NOT STRONG*** </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Wow, I have a peanut and jelly sandwich for lunch. </li></ul></ul>
  • 7. <ul><li>Maria! Come and see the dog. </li></ul><ul><li>Stop! The dog will bite you! </li></ul><ul><li>ANSWER: </li></ul><ul><li>No, because Maria is a noun and this sentence is a direct address. The word stop although it is said with a lot of emotion however stop in this sentence is a verb. </li></ul>
  • 8. <ul><li>Interjections often used to convey delight, excitement, surprise, dismay or other strong emotions: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Yes! </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Oops! </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Ouch! </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Yay! </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Sometimes surprise can be conveyed as a question: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Huh? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>What? </li></ul></ul>
  • 9. <ul><li>*** Just like cooking, an interjection is used as a spice to add character and flavor to a person’s speech or writing. HOWEVER, a person should use this spice wisely and not over spice*** </li></ul><ul><li>EXAMPLE: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Wow! you look great, Yay! I love your shirt, hooray! </li></ul></ul>
