An interjection, also called exclamation, is a word used to express exclamation
or an emotional feeling.
what a pain!
Tenho que ir embora.
I have to leave now.
antes que eu me esqueça.
before I forget.
- Depending on the intonation, an interjection can
express a different feeling.
- Sometimes it is difficult to translate an interjection
to another language, but
in a context you will always understand what is meant.
