  • Hi! Sorry... Hey, and welcome back to Weekly Words. My name is Alisha, and this week we're

  • going to talk about interjections. This is gonna be fun. Let start.

  • The first word isbah.” B-A-H. Maybe you're upset about something or you're tired

  • of dealing with something. People often throw up their hands like this when they say it.

  • They go, “bah!” and walk away. “Bah humbugis a very, very well-known use of

  • this interjection. This from uhthe story “A Christmas Carol.” One of the characters

  • saysbah humbug!” at all these things that upset him.

  • Alright. The next interjection isaha!” “Ahais used whenever you feel surprised

  • about something. Or when you have a good idea about something. For example, sitting at work

  • actually maybe you shouldn't do this work because your coworkers will think you're crazy.

  • If you're feeling really excited about your idea you can go like this with your finger

  • and go, “Aha! I have an idea for my presentation next week.”

  • Okay. Next one ismeh.” This, I think has my only become popular in the last...

  • I don't know. It started being used, I think, more on the internet. Now it has come to be

  • used in everyday life. “Mehis just when you're, you're not very excited about something.

  • Um, maybe you went to a party, a friend asks you how it was, and you're like, “Yeah,

  • I went. It was pretty meh.” We use it like an adjective actually, or you can just use

  • it as a one-word interjection. “Meh.” “Meh.” “Meh.”

  • Okay. Next word isoh.” “Oh is a very, very useful one. You can useohin a

  • number of situations when you're surprised, when you're thinking of something, when you

  • want to have kind of a soft introduction to whatever you're saying. I think I tend to

  • use it as a question or when I'm feeling surprised. So when my friend tells me something like,

  • Oh, hey, I have this great news.” I'll say, “Oh?” Just by itself as a question.

  • To get somebody's attention, I might say, “Oh, did you see that new movie last week?”

  • A sentence starter for me anyway.

  • Okay the next word is “h'm.” We use “h'm” when we're thinking about something,

  • when we need a minute to consider our thoughts. It can be used at the beginning of a sentence

  • or just while you're thinking on its own. “H'm, what might be a good example sentence

  • for “h'm”?

  • End! End! Those are all interjection. Those are all interjections. Try to use them. If

  • you use these correctly in your speech, throughout your speech,.uh, it'll help you sound a lot

  • more natural and a lot more smooth, uh, in your speaking ability, so give them a try.

  • Thanks again for joining us this week, and I will see you next time for more Weekly Words.

  • Bye!
