Class 8 English Grammar Chapter 12 Interjections

Class 8 English Grammar Chapter 12 Interjections. An Interjection is a word which is used to express a sudden feeling of joy or sorrow or emotion of the mind. It is not a part of speech because it does not enter into the structure of a sentence.

It stands independently. Ah and Ah me are used for both sorrow and joy. For example, Ah me! What a bloody deed. (Sorrow). Ah! Your mother has died. (Sorrow). Ah! I have stood first in the class. (Joy).
