interjections

An interjection is a part of speech that shows the emotion or feeling of the author. These words or phrases can stand alone or be placed before or after a sentence. Many times an interjection is followed by a punctuation mark, often an exclamation point.

here are some examples:
Ahem – The sound of someone clearing their throat and means “attention” or “listen”
Aah – This is used as a call for help or when someone is scared
Boo – Used to scare someone or to voice disapproval
Eh – This is used when you didn’t hear or understand what someone said
Eww – Ahows dislike or disgust
Hmm – This can mean you are thinking or hesitating
Jeez – Could mean you can’t believe something, or you are exasperated
Ooh-la-la – A slightly comical way to refer to something as fancy or special
Oops – An exclamation people use when they accidentally do something
Phew – This expresses relief or that you are glad something is over
