Interjection

In`ter*jec"tion

(?), n. [L. interjectio: cf. F. interjection. See Interject.]
[1913 Webster]

1. The act of interjecting or throwing between; also, that which is interjected.
[1913 Webster]

The interjection of laughing.
Bacon.
[1913 Webster]

2. (Gram.) A word or form of speech thrown in to express emotion or feeling, as O! Alas! Ha ha! Begone! etc. Compare Exclamation.
[1913 Webster]

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.
[1913 Webster]

How now! interjections? Why, then, some be of laughing, as, ah, ha, he!
Shak.
[1913 Webster]
