Module 8 INTERJECTION

  1. 1. Almost any words can serve as an interjection, because an interjection is more function, an exclamation or hesitation noise within the sentence, than it is any particular words or set of words. However, some words commonly serve as interjection, having few or no other functions.<br />Reported by : Ms Gina Ashley & Ms. LilibethLucin<br />
  2. 2. Interjections are words used to express strong feeling or sudden emotion. They are included in a sentence - usually at the start - to express a sentiment such as surprise, disgust, joy, excitement or enthusiasm.<br /> Examples: A. Hey! Get off that floor!<br /> B. Oh, that is a surprise.<br /> C. Good! Now we can move on.<br /> D. Jeepers, that was close.<br />Interjection<br />Reported by : Ms Gina Ashley & Ms. LilibethLucin<br />

  17. 17. Expressions such as 'yes', 'no' and 'indeed' (usually at the start of a sentence) are known as 'interjections'. Interjections can be followed by a comma. They have no real grammatical value but we use them quite often, usually more in speaking than in writing. When Interjection are inserted into sentence, they have no grammatical connection to the sentence.<br /> Examples:a. Well, the rain has played its part in the outcome of this match.  b. Yes, she will apologize.  c. Absolutely, a fifth of all the students live in the village.<br />Commas after Interjections<br />Reported by : Ms Gina Ashley & Ms. LilibethLucin<br />

He deserves some applause for that performance.</li></ul>Adverb as an interjection:<br /><ul><li>Nope! You cannot go into that room until I give you permission.</li></ul>Noun, adjectives, verb and adverbs become interjection when they are uttered as exclamations.<br />Reported by : Ms Gina Ashley & Ms. LilibethLucin<br />
  20. 20. If an interjection appears mid sentence, offset it with commas. Likewise, if it appears at the end, offset it with a comma.<br />Examples: a. The office can handle, well, four hundred applications per day.  <br /> b. It's cold, indeed.<br /> c. The school served meatloaf again for lunch, yuck!<br />Reported by : Ms Gina Ashley & Ms. LilibethLucin<br />
