An Academic Look at EWW

EWW is an interjection. An interjection is not grammatically related to any other part of the sentence. It is included in a sentence (usually at the start) to express a sentiment such as surprise, disgust, joy, excitement, or enthusiasm. In formal writing, interjections are offset from the surrounding words with commas. For example:
  • EWW, that's disgusting!
  • EWW, I would never do that!
EWW is commonly seen without an exclamation mark (i.e., it can be written "EWW!" or "EWW").

As it imitates a sound that occurs naturally, EWW is an onomatopoeic word. It is similar to words such as "Achoo," "Ah" and "Mmm."

What Did We Used To Say?

Before the digital era, we might have said something like "That's gross!" instead of using EWW.
