    I can't remember what kind of expressions these are.

    Do you guys know what expressions like: "holy cow!" or "God knows... (something)" are called?
    I asked my Literature Professor and he told me, but I foolishly didn't write down and now I can't remember for the life of me. I tried to look them up but I didn't find anything. I just know they're not idioms, nor secular phrases.

    Both are idioms . . . and can be used as interjections.

    Interjections, that was it! Thank you so much!
