An interjection expresses emotion and has no grammatical relation to the rest of the sentence.

Some interjections are ah, alas, hey, oh, oops, ouch, well, whew, and yeah.

An interjection is often set off from the rest of the sentence by an exclamation point or by one or more commas. An exclamation point indicates strong emotion. A comma indicates mild emotion.

  • Oh, no! I locked my keys in the car! [Oh, no expresses strong emotion.] 
  • Well, we can always get tickets later. [Well expresses mild emotion.]
