    According to the government archives, the first time someone used it as an interjection was during one of the most famous broadcasts in the history of radio journalism. In 1937, Herb Morrison gave an eyewitness report of the explosion and crash of the German passenger airship, Hindenburg. “It’s fire and it crashing! . . . This is the worst of the worst catastrophes in the world! Oh, it’s crashing . . . oh, four or five hundred feet into the sky, and it’s a terrific crash, ladies and gentlemen. There’s smoke, and there’s flames, now, and the frame is crashing to the ground, not quite to the mooring mast. Oh, the humanity, and all the passengers screaming around here!” The reporter sounds completely astounded by what he is witnessing, which was everything that humanity encompasses: death, horror, fear, pain, indifference…

    I was sitting comfortably on my bed reading a story on Reddit about Ghengis Khan when Travis Miler burst into my room. “Derson?” “What’s good.” My phone said it was 8:56 am. “Bowl?” “I’d be down.” I laid back on my bed and rubbed my eyes, sinking into the pad on my mattress. I twisted some chest hairs and continued reading. Travis set his backpack down and dogged around for the ideal eighth-bag to pinch out of. He opened my closet and pulled out a bong wrapped at the base and downstem with…

    After slamming the GOP tax cuts and doubling down on calling bonuses to hard-working Americans "crumbs," a patriot stunned Nancy Pelosi with just six words. During a town hall event Tuesday in Phoenix, Arizona, a heckler asked the House Minority Leader, "How much are you worth, Nancy?" The remark was in response to Pelosi rambling about how the GOP tax cuts allowing Americans to keep more of their hard-earned money was pathetic and unpatriotic. “These are kitchen table issues for America’s…

    Before he goes on to explain how medicine relates to Love, Eryximachus provides his second interjection of medical advice. Aristophanes asks him to both stop his hiccupping and to take his place in the speech-giving, to which Eryximachus responds “ἀλλὰ ποιήσω ἀμφότερα ταῦτα” (Pl. Sym. 185d). Here, Eryximachus uses the particle ἀλλά, which is a stronger and more precise particle than the weaker δέ, to connect the sentences and introduce his thought (Smyth 2775) (Smyth 2834). In this case, ἀλλά…

    Hughes writes, “In terms of current Afro-American popular music… this poem on contemporary Harlem, like bebop, is marked by conflicting changes, sudden nuances, sharp and impudent interjections , broken rhythms, and passages sometimes in the manner of the jam session” (Hughes, 387). Montage is meant to be a poetic jam session on, and reflective of, life in Harlem; the cacophony of the adopted bebop style reflects the cacophony of Harlem. In the opening poem, Dream Boogie, he can especially see…

    Since the conversation took place in BS’s room (and because of his personality) it seemed natural that he would lead the conversation. Out of all the participants, he probably spoke and interrupted the most, although everyone made their fair share of interjections.

SN is very excitable and, when comfortable, will interject whenever she has a…
