Whoomp! Discover the story of Interjections

Interjection can often be used paradoxically to indicate something evident. “Um” is one classic example. “Um, did you happen to know that today is the time limit for submitting the project?” Besides, one can use longer expressions in sentences such as “Get to work! What a beautiful car!” These sentences are called complete sentences exclamations.
