Interjection is every word that expresses feelings and emotions in different ways. Examples: ah!, phew!, yup!, etc.
Interjections are almost always followed by an exclamation point, which can be immediately after them or at the end of the sentence: Examples: Credo! how horrible!. Goodbye My friends!
The meaning of each interjection always depends on the context in which it appears and the intonation with which it is pronounced. Example: psiu! (shortly) – calling, shriek! (stretched) – request for silence.
When the interjection is expressed by more than one word, it is called interjective phrase. Examples: oh balls!, cross credo!, hello!
