Chapter 28. Grammar > Interjections

Interjections

Interjections are words or phrases used to communicate excitement, orders, or protests. Sometimes they can be used by themselves, but often they are contained within more complex sentence structures. For example, Wow, I can't believe it. Oh, I didn't realize you were here. No, you shouldn't have done that.

Most interjections are treated as parenthetical elements and are set apart from the rest of the sentence by commas or a set of commas. If the interjection is more forceful, it is followed with an exclamation point.
