    Hi, SEC tutoring team, first I''d like to appraise the work all of you are doing. Then, I have something to ask about the interjection. I think this is an important part when we are speaking. It plays the role of making our conversaton smoother and more natural... But, my pulse of interjection words is really poor... So, pls help me !!! Thx a lot !!!

    Hi B_mai_wei,
    At first when I read your questions, I did not know what interjection means, so I had to ask KyAnh for it. Thanks to him that I understand it now. I tried to think of some (oh my god, oh my gosh, oh my goodness, geeze, darn it, oh dear, hey, ouch, oh no). Those are the ones I can think of right now. However, I just searched the internet for this. And I''ll add the lists here.
    First, I''ll add a brief description of what "interjection" means for those who have never heard of it (like me ).
    An interjection is a part of speech that usually has no grammatical connection to the rest of the sentence and simply expresses emotion on the part of the speaker, although most interjections have clear definitions. Filled pauses such as uh, er, um, are also considered interjections. Interjections are generally uninflected function words and have sometimes been seen as sentence-words, since they can replace or be replaced by a whole sentence (they are holophrastic). Sometimes, however, interjections combine with other words to form sentences, but not with finite verbs.
    Interjections are used when the speaker encounters events that cause these emotions â?" unexpectedly, painfully, surprisingly or in many other sudden ways. But several languages have interjections that cannot be related to emotions.
    The word "interjection" literally means "thrown in between" from the Latin inter ("between") and iacere ("throw").
    English words used mostly as interjections include ugh, wow, ouch, scat, alas, and eureka.
    Conventions like Hello and Goodbye are also interjections, as are exclamations like Cheers! and Hurray!. In fact, very often they are characterized by exclamation marks depending on the stress of the attitude or the force of the emotion they are expressing. Well can also be used as an interjection, for example when put at the beginning of a sentence. Much profanity (see also expletive) takes the form of interjections.
    Some linguists consider the pro-sentences yes, no, amen and okay as interjections, since they have no syntactical connection with other words and rather work as sentences themselves.
    Interjections can be phrases or even sentences as well as words:
    As I entered the room â?" Oh, my goodness! What I saw! â?" he was still standing there.
    Expressions "Excuse me!", "Sorry!", and similar ones often serve as interjections.

    Very good question, B_mai_wei. I have also learnt something today. Thanks for asking!
    An interjection is a word added to a sentence to convey emotion. It is not grammatically related to any other part of the sentence.
    Every complete sentence contains two parts: a subject and a predicate. The subject is what (or whom) the sentence is about, while the predicate tells something about the subject. In the following sentences, the predicate is enclosed in braces ({}), while the subject is highlighted.
    Judy {runs}.
    Judy and her dog {run on the beach every morning}.
    To determine the subject of a sentence, first isolate the verb and then make a question by placing "who?" or "what?" before it -- the answer is the subject.
    The audience littered the theatre floor with torn wrappings and spilled popcorn.
    The verb in the above sentence is "littered." Who or what littered? The audience did. "The audience" is the subject of the sentence. The predicate (which always includes the verb) goes on to relate something about the subject: what about the audience? It "littered the theatre floor with torn wrappings and spilled popcorn."
    Unusual Sentences
    Imperative sentences (sentences that give a command or an order) differ from conventional sentences in that their subject, which is always "you," is understood rather than expressed.
    Stand on your head. ("You" is understood before "stand.")
    Be careful with sentences that begin with "there" plus a form of the verb "to be." In such sentences, "there" is not the subject; it merely signals that the true subject will soon follow.
    There were three stray kittens cowering under our porch steps this morning.
    If you ask who? or what? before the verb ("were cowering"), the answer is "three stray kittens," the correct subject.
    You use the period, by far the most common of the end punctuation marks, to terminate a sentence that makes a statement. You may also use periods with imperative sentences that have no sense of urgency or excitement attached:
    Without a doubt, Lady Emily was much happier after her divorce.
    Turn right at the stop sign.
    Bring me a cup of coffee and a cheese danish.
    When you want to express a sense of urgency or very strong emotion, you may end your imperative sentences and statements with an exclamation mark:
    Look out below!
    Leave this house at once!
    I hate him!
    Exclamation marks are, however, rare in formal writing. Use them sparingly, if at all.
    You should use the question mark at the end of a direct question:
    Who''s on first?
    Where is my flowered cape?
    Be careful not to use a question mark at the end of an indirect question. Indirect questions are simply statements, and therefore end with a period:
    I wonder who was chosen as Harvest King in the county fair.
    She asked if she could play pinball.
    The teacher asked who was chewing gum.
    Simple Subject and Simple Predicate
    Every subject is built around one noun or pronoun (or more) that, when stripped of all the words that modify it, is known as the simple subject. Consider the following example:
    A piece of pepperoni pizza would satisfy his hunger.
    The subject is built around the noun "piece," with the other words of the subject -- "a" and "of pepperoni pizza" -- modifying the noun. "Piece" is the simple subject.
    Likewise, a predicate has at its centre a simple predicate, which is always the verb or verbs that link up with the subject. In the example we just considered, the simple predicate is "would satisfy" -- in other words, the verb of the sentence.
    A sentence may have a compound subject -- a simple subject consisting of more than one noun or pronoun -- as in these examples:
    Team pennants, rock posters and family photographs covered the boy''s bedroom walls.
    Her uncle and she walked slowly through the Inuit art gallery and admired the powerful sculptures exhibited there.
    The second sentence above features a compound predicate, a predicate that includes more than one verb pertaining to the same subject (in this case, "walked" and "admired").
