You're right, Ismael. This is one tough piece of work.
I don't think we can address this on the Grammar Exchange. It's just too much! Sorry.
Some of the words you've given are greetings and leave-takings, and some, like "zap," wouldn't be described as interjections. And, in fact, there are a lot more that might fall into the categories of interjections, greetings, and leave-takings.
I will, though, address the first five on the list:
ADIOS = ah-dee-OS = Spanish for "goodbye." AH = ah = an expression of acknowledgement AHA = a-HA = an interjection expression final understanding AHEM = a-HEM = a word used to get someone's attention AHOY = a-HOY = a word they use in the Navy to greet each other or to announce something. _______
Maybe someone else wants to take on the next five.
What are the most commonly used interections in English, either from the list above or from your own, how they are pronounced. I think this make it a bit simpler!This message has been edited. Last edited by: Izzy loves you all,
