Interjections are words intended to express different levels of emotion or surprise, and are usually seen as independent grammatically from the main sentence.

  • Interjections usually stand alone and are often punctuated with an exclamation point. 

Oh!      Wow!      My goodness!

  • Sometimes mild interjections are included within a sentence and are then set off by commas.

Well, it's about time you showed up.
