Okay. I don't usually use the word "holy" and "cow" together, but here, i'll make an exception, as I am trying to explain to you what interjections are. Interjection is actually a word added to a sentence to convey emotion. It is not grammatically related to any other part of the sentence. To help you understand, let me show you a video.
Yeah, I know that the sound of the Sabre Tooth Tiger is fake, but the video did give you a rough idea on what interjections are, right? Great! I know you will be able to understand easily.
I you'd noticed, I always use interjections in my writings. It makes it a lot more interesting.
