Use interjections with care#

An interjection is an emotional greeting or phrase, usually followed by an exclamation point. For example, expressions such as Hooray!, Excuse me!, Sorry!, No thank you!, Oh dear!, and Hey, that’s mine! are interjections.

In rare cases, an interjection might be appropriate in technical content. For example, at the end of a procedure that targets novice users, you might write, “Congratulations! You successfully created your first cloud server.”

However, because the tone of an interjection can be condescending, use them sparingly and with care.
