Conjunctions and Interjections
A conjunction is a word that joins words or groups of words. The most common conjunctions are the coordinating conjunctions.

mean BUT funny Virginia, Maryland, AND Delaware

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.

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