Vocabulary Builder- Interjections

 

Hello!  In this lesson we will learn many new interjections in English.  In a previous lesson, we learned that an interjection is an exclamatory or extra word which does not have any grammatical connection to the rest of the sentence it is in.

 

An interjection is used to express surprise, excitement, disappointment, disgust or other strong emotion. An interjection is used as a filler word or a word to smooth the transition from one part of a statement to another. Sometimes an interjection is used to express the speaker's belief that something should be obvious.

 

Listen carefully to the pronunciation of each word and watch the shape of my mouth as I speak. Then, say each word while watching your own mouth on the webcam. If you do not have your webcam connected, simply practice repeating the words.
