#EngVocab: Interjections

Aloha, fellas! What are you doing tonight?

Stay tuned on our timeline cause we’ll share some unique interjections to enrich your vocab, fellas. ;)

Interjection: a part of speech that conveys the emotion of the author. It’s usually followed by an exclamation point.

Here are some interjections we should probably use more often.

1. Aloha!

A Hawaiian word that can be used both as a greeting and a farewell, as well as ‘good wishes’, ‘love’, or ‘affection’.

Aloha! Welcome to our guest house, Alika.

2. Hasta la vista

A famous interjection from Terminator 2 movie. It’s derived from a Spanish word means ‘until I see you’ or ‘goodbye’.

It was very nice talking to you, Arnold. Hasta la vista!

3. Bada-bing bada-boom!
It’s used to emphasize that something will happen effortlessly and predictably. It has the sam meaning as ‘voila!’ in French.

“And bada-bing, bada-boom… your paper is done!” said the fairy godmother.

4. Roger

It means that a message has been understood or accepted; means ‘OK’ or ‘alright’ in informal use. It’s usually used in a radio communication.

‘Go finish your chores!’ ‘Roger, Sir!’ Andy replied.

5. Eureka!

It’s a cry of joy or satisfaction upon discovering something. It’s derived from the Greek ‘heurēka’ (I have found it).

“The answer hits me. Eureka!” I cried.

It’s a wrap for tonight. Hasta la vista, baby!
