The present study tackles the pragmatic significance of teaching ESL or EFL learners how to use interjections appropriately according to the context they find themselves in. It falls into four sections where the first of which sheds light upon "interjection' a linguistic forms manifesting emotions or feelings when speakers encounter events that cause pain or surprise or any other unexpected feelings, while the second is to compare interjection with onomatopoeia imitating the natural sound of an event to transform certain communicative values, the third of which is to deal with the discoursal functions of interjections for being context-sensitive or dependent as a sort of communicative adjacent pairs, and the last one focuses on the importance of learning how to use and respond to others' use of interjection in interaction. Finally the conclusion sums up the findings of the study considering teaching interjections is a way to contextualize language that aims at having a situationally competent ESL or EFL speakers

There are many factors which cause to the rise of Post-colonial Literature and which provide the gaining prominence to this field inside the western academic studies. Diaspora, identity and the Globalitarian Law of information share this growing interest with their modern currency in the field of Post-colonial literary texts within the western philosophy and literature. With the appearance of the book "The Empire Writes Back: Theory and Practice in Post-colonial Literature" by Bill Ashcroft, Gareth Griffiths and Helen Tiffin during 1989 the annexation to refer to other parts of the world extends the use of such terms in the third world countries and other European former colonies in Asia and Africa. According to the theorists and writers, those areas may explore this interaction between the European nations and the societies that have been once formerly colonized by other countries. During the modern age, the term Post-colonial refers to those frequent modifications or even the abandonment on the boundaries which are inherited from the literature of colonization and the modern age gives much more facts to this field than the colonial fiction which is found in Joseph Conrad or E. M. Forster's.The paper attempts to implement the remarkable staging of the members of the displaced and the diasporic whose very presence brings a considerable debate among the theorists and critics over the new parameters of Post-colonial field in the western culture. Identity, diaspora and Globalization depart the post-colonial writing from the Dying Empire whereby their critical process is derived from the poststructuralist and postmodernist thought
