This is for Tinker Jack and anyone else interested in English interjections.

Americans in their 30’s and 40’s grew up watching this Schoolhouse Rock video about interjections on Saturday mornings. That’s how we learned about interjections!

Here are some common interjections:

Shh – means “Be quiet!”
Phew – means “That’s a relief!”
Yeah! – means “Yes!”
Wow! – means “Exciting”
Hey! – calls someone’s attention
Hurray! – Expression of joy

Feel free to add your favorite interjections in the comments below!
