By revisiting interjections in Scandinavian Studies in Language, the explicit goal of the issue is to bring together Scandinavian and global perspectives on interjections. Our volume opens up Scandinavia-based research to the global audience, and at the same time, our analysis is characterized by deep connections with global scholarships in the plural. The seminal work on interjections by Wierzbicka (1991 [2003]); and Ameka (1992) had a crosslinguistic vision that continues to inspire the ongoing work of understanding both local interjections and global comparison.
