Parts of Speech - Interjections

An interjection is a word or word group that shows feeling. A mild interjection is followed by a comma; a strong interjection is followed by an exclamation mark. Interjections are rather easy to understand so we will not spend much time on them.

Examples:
Well, we will soon be home.
Oh! I didn't know he had died.
