This list of interjections should help you understand interjections a little better. If you want to learn more about this fascinating part of speech, check out our interjections page.
Interjections are words that show emotion. They are not grammatically related to the rest of the sentence.
Because I'm a total fan of sentence diagramming, you'll also learn how to diagram interjections at the bottom of this page. Wahoo!

Did you notice that some of these interjections are made of more than one word? That's okay. Some interjections are made of multiple words, but they function as a single interjection.

Diagramming sentences is a way to show how the words in a sentence are related to each other. Diagramming a sentence is like solving a fun puzzle, so using diagrams to teach grammar is a wonderful way to make grammar fun.
The cool thing about interjections is that they're 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 float it on a line hovering above the rest of the sentence. They're not joined to any other part of the sentence.
Holy cow! This cake is delicious!
That is a pretty good way of showing that they aren't related to any of the other words, isn't it?
