  Interjectional  \In`ter*jec"tion*al\,  a. 
  1.  Thrown  in  between  other  words  or  phrases;  parenthetical; 
  ejaculatory;  as  an  interjectional  remark. 
 
  2.  Pertaining  to  or  having  the  nature  of  an  interjection; 
  consisting  of  natural  and  spontaneous  exclamations. 
 
  Certain  of  the  natural  accompaniments  of 
  interjectional  speech,  such  as  gestures,  grimaces, 
  and  gesticulations,  are  restrained  by  civilization.
