An interjection is an exclamation or an abrupt remark used when we are surprised or shocked or just want to get someone's attention by interrupting. It is a part of speech which expresses emotion and can go at the beginning or the end of a sentence, usually followed by an exclamation mark.

In English an interjection is sometimes not an actual word but a noise we make to express how we are feeling.

Listed below are some examples of interjections :
