Conjunction is used to join or combine two clauses or sentences. (Clause is not complete sentence. It has a subject and predicate) (Predicate contains the verb and its complement) (Complement is used to complete a grammatical construction)

Interjection
Interjection is used to express emotions or feelings (Joy, Sorrow, Wonder, Fear, Anger etc). It itself is not meaningful but after reading full sentence, we can easily understand for what it has been used. (Interjections are not specific to English only. Many are those which are same in other languages also)
Exclamation mark is used with interjection and after this mark, the word is written with Capital letter
