This interjection is used to express multiple reactions.
It can be used to express:
Surprise- Wow! You won the match.
Sadness: - Wow! I’m really sorry to hear that your husband lost his job.
2. OUCH / OW
Either of these can be used for showing pain in the moment when you hurt yourself:
“Ow!I banged my knee on the corner of the table.”
3. EW / EEECK / YUCK / UGH
The function of these interjections is to express disgust or hate.
“Ew! Your wardrobe stinks. Do you even wash your clothes?”.
Best used when you suddenly understand/ discover something, as a thinking word, to express contempt.
In a Math test: “Aha! I got the answer. ” (finding)
Contempt: Ah! Look what you’ve done! You’ve ruined it!
Understanding: Ah. I see what you mean.
Thinking: Ah…that’s not exactly what I meant.
5. OOPS / WHOOPS
When you make a mistake or react to a mistake you can use these interjections:
To make a mistake:
“Oops – I just spilled my soda all over the table.”
“I’ll get some paper towels to clean it up.
Reaction to a mistake:
“I borrowed a book from my teacher and then left it on the bus.”
“Whoops! Was she mad?”
6. DUH / WHOOP-DEE-DOO / LA-DEE-DAH
Use these interjections to express sarcasm. They should only be used with very close friends, because they would be offensive and inappropriate in a business context or a social context.
Duh is used in reaction to an extremely obvious statement:
1. “Hey, did you know you can share pictures on Facebook?”
2. Whoop-dee-doo is used when you want to say something is not as great as it seems. It’s like “Who cares?”
“I won $20 in the lottery!”
3. La-dee-dah is also used to express “I don’t really care,” in reaction to somebody else trying to sound impressive or show off:
“My boyfriend bought me a Ferrari.”
7. UM / UH
Use these interjections to pause while you think of what to say next.
Example: “How many students are there at your university?”
“Um, I’m not sure. I think around 1,000 – but I’ll have to find out from the website.”
This word is used to express despair or hopelessness.
Example: Gah! I give up!
This is a dismissive interjection.
Example: Bah! You never liked him anyways.
Meaning: That way stupid!
Example: I just deleted all my files. Doh!
