In this paper, the distribution of interjections over the clause is studied within the context of a topological framework. For this study authentic data have been extracted from a corpus comprising 1 million words of written material and 174,000 words of spoken material. In order to explain this distribution we study the influence of the text type in which an interjection is found to occur, the length of the interjection and the function of the interjection. All three factors are shown to play a role. This confirms and specifies hypotheses that hitherto had gone untested.
