GRAMMAR NOTES: INTERJECTIONS

LSEG: interjections

Particularly important in Grammar is the fact that interjections have no syntactic functions. It happens, in “real life”, that fairly many transmitted messages do not contain a predicative verb (they have an “elliptic form/ meaning”). However, without a predicative verb working syntactically as the GREEN LEAVESpredicate in a sentence there is no subject, no object, and no adverbial; further, the attributes also do not make much sense.

Now, all those incomplete/elliptical messages that cannot be analyzed syntactically are labeled, perfectly safe, as “interjections” in Morphology. Consequently, the morphological category of “interjection” becomes a lot more complex.

In most instances, interjections are marked by a comma, or by the exclamation mark, in order to indicate their increased emotional/emphatic content.
LSEG4: FRAGMENT FROM CHAPTER INTERJECTIONS



“Interjections” per-se are used to add little “spice” in a literary document, or to express in (onomatopoeic) words various natural or artificial sounds. Note, however, that it is best to exercise moderation in style, therefore interjections should better be used with great caution. Exaggerations, of any kind, are always a clear indication of limited knowledge—and of poor literary manners.
