  Interjection - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An interjection, sometimes called a filled pause, 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.
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).
The word "interjection" literally means "thrown in between" from the Latin inter ("between") and iacere ("throw").
