INTJ: interjection

Definition

An interjection is a word that is used most often as an exclamation or part of an exclamation. It typically expresses an emotional reaction, is not syntactically related to other accompanying expressions, and may include a combination of sounds not otherwise found in the language. In Portuguese, we have interjections that are multi word expressions, as Deus me livre and pois é.

Note that words primarily belonging to another part of speech retains their original category when used in exclamations. For example, God is a NOUN even in exclamatory uses. (This is an issue in our current version.)

As a special case of interjections, we recognize feedback particles such as taí, não, etc.
