Exclamation And Interjection

Welcome to today’s class!!

We are excited to have you join our class!!

In today’s English class, we will be learning about Exclamation And Interjection

Exclamation

exclamation and interjection

Did you know that exclamation point, also called an exclamation mark, is a punctuation mark that goes at the end of certain sentences. It’s less common than the period or question mark, but it’s very easy to use. Some might say it’s too easy to use.

In addition, an exclamatory sentence is one that expresses a strong or forceful emotion, such as anger, surprise, or joy.

Some examples of exclamatory sentence include:

I am waiting!

exclamation

Oh! I missed my friend Tessy.

exclamation

Get out of the room!

interjection

Occasionally, you might see one at the end of a sentence that is phrased as a question.

How could I have forgotten to pack underwear!

However, an interjection is a word that you throw in between sentences or thoughts to express a sudden feeling.

Because interjections usually express sudden feelings, you will often see them used to express surprise (both good surprises and bad ones) or excitement.

Yikes! There’s a dog in the garage!

You planned this party just for me? Wow!

Ouch! That bee just stung me!

Yahoo!

Oops!

Terrific! Jordan will send you the contract this afternoon.

In summary, we now understand that an exclamation goes at the end of certain sentences, while an interjection usually expresses sudden feelings, often seen when conveying surprises.
