Interjection

Definition of Interjection

In`ter`jec´tion
n.1.
1.The act of interjecting or throwing between; also, that which is interjected.
The interjection of laughing.
- Bacon.
2.(Gram.) A word or form of speech thrown in to express emotion or feeling, as O! Alas! Ha ha! Begone! etc. Compare Exclamation.
An interjection implies a meaning which it would require a whole grammatical sentence to expound, and it may be regarded as the rudiment of such a sentence. But it is a confusion of thought to rank it among the parts of speech.
- Earle.
How now! interjections? Why, then, some be of laughing, as, ah, ha, he!
- Shak.
