Grammar: Interjection

Posted February 2, 2015 by Kathy Davie in Author Resources, Editing, Grammar Explanations, Self-Editing, Writing

Such a long term for such short words…but you wouldn’t want to be without them if you’re in trouble or trying to catch someone’s attention. And, of course, when your team is winning (or losing, god forbid!), you want to cheer them on.

Grammar Explanations is…

…an evolving list of the structural rules and principles that determines where words are placed in phrases or sentences as well as how the language is spoken. Sometimes I run across an example that helps explain better or another “also known as”. Heck, there’s always a better way to explain it, so if it makes quicker and/or better sense, I would appreciate suggestions and comments from anyone on an area of grammar with which you struggle or on which you can contribute more understanding.
