An interjection is a word used to express emotion.
An interjection has no grammatical relationship to the rest of the sentence. Usually an interjection is followed by an exclamation point.
Hey! Watch out for that car.
Yippee! It is a snow day.

Sometimes an interjection is set off by a comma.
  Goodness, it must be raining.
  Oh, well then let's not go.
