Diagram Interjections

Diagramming sentences is a way to SHOW how the words in a sentence are related to each other.

The fun thing about interjections is that they are actually not grammatically related to the rest of the sentence, and sentence diagrams of interjections make that easy to see.

To diagram an interjection, you simply float it on a line hovering above the rest of the sentence.

They are not joined to any other part of the sentence.

Holy cow! This cake is delicious!

That's a pretty good way of showing that they aren't related to any of the other words, isn't it?

We love this program! I cannot tell you how crazy impressed I am by how professional it is.

My kids, who were not looking forward to this at all, went nuts after watching the first video. They loved your energy, and consequently they did not miss a single lesson even though I never reminded them to do anything.
