Here's a list of interjections.

This list of interjections should help you understand interjections a little better. 

Remember that interjections are words that show emotion. They are not grammatically related to the rest of the sentence.

Diagramming Interjections

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?
