Speaking

Speaking lesson: interjections

Interjections are short little sounds such as oh!, um…, or huh?

We mainly use them in speaking.

They have no grammatical connection within a sentence.

In writing, we often use an exclamation mark (!) after an interjection.

Hey John, are you coming? Hurry up!”

A: “Do you want to go to New York for the weekend?”

B: Um“, I’d like to, but I don’t have any spare money at the moment.”
