Using Interjections - Word Emotions

First the definition:

Attached Image QUOTE (
4. Grammar.

Any member of a class of words expressing emotion, distinguished in most languages by their use in grammatical isolation, as Hey! Oh! Ouch! Ugh! Any other word or expression so used, as Good grief! Indeed! Ref. Source 2m

There are many versions of interjections which can go into phrases such as "For the love of Mike", however in this Thread I will mostly be focusing on the one word options that people tend to use to express thinking, being caught or surprised like: ahh, hmm, etc.

It is important to note that the first choice of description should be the use of adjectives, adverbs and to some extent metaphors rather than interjections which often times are not words but urban language. In addition to this, this site filters the use of triple letters as interjections do not need more than two letters even though many writers tend to tack on more. For instance the thinking "Hmm" does not need five "M"'s attached to it. If you attempt to do that by adding on more "M"S than are needed then the filter will make it just one "M". The only exception is "Zzz" which denotes sleeping and "Www" for the World Wide Web.

For knowledge only

Here are some options that show how interjections are used, but again your first choice should not be these for emotional definition as its often the "Cheap" way to be descriptive:
* English interjections
* Dictionary of interjections (Aww, oh, ah, eek, oops)

Emotions Word Interjections Using

Hmm, I don't know. When writing, I'll often use those sort of interjections to denote natural language.

Now, I use those 'word emotions' as part of a longer piece of text, but they're certainly used.

The revelation clearly shocked the young jedi, whose eyebrows arched upwards. "I... Uhh... Wow." He stammered a bit as his brain struggled to catch up with this development. "Alright, so let me get this straight. You've been having relationship trouble, your mom died, and some guy who's been creeping on you since you were eight years old convinced you that killing children could fix all your problems? That's messed up."

Sure, I am not saying they must not be used at all. The point of my Post is that interjections should be formatted properly otherwise the filter will make it look odd.

For instance, sometimes I will see writings that include multiple letters repeated dozens of times just to say the same thing that can be done in a 3 letter interjection.

This is a recent code I added so if a writer's reliance on repeating the same letter multiple times was their way of expressing emotion they will need to cut back or try being more descriptive.

Emotions Word Interjections Using

I rarely use them but I also hate seeing them exaggerated with many repeated letters. Its like the difference between saying "Very very" rather than just "Very".

These can be great to use but they depend on your audience otherwise they may not be taken well or in the way it was intended. This is more true in this sensitive world of political correctness.
