An Exercise on 
the Punctuation of Interjections

From: Growth in English: Seventh Year

Interjections are usually set off 
by a comma or commas, or by an exclamation point,
but they may be set off by other punctuation marks.

1. Add punctuation for interjections.
2. Put parentheses ( ) around each prepositional phrase.
3. Underline subjects once, finite verbs twice, and label complements ("PN," "PA," "IO," "DO").
4. Write "Inj" over every interjection.

1. Oh how cold it is!

2. The guide of course is an excellent rider.

3. Why what do you mean?

4. Well I hardly think I can go.

5. Of course it is too late for the boys to go.

6. No it is not too late for them.

7. Will you close the window please?

8. Well I suppose you have ordered your tickets.

9. No I have not attended to the matter.

10. Oh how glad we are to see you again!

Write five sentences which illustrate the use of the comma to set off interjections.
