What does the above clause mean?


“Boy” here is just an intensifier, like “wow” or “man” or “gosh”, so it means “This is really going to hurt.”


Is it an intensifier or interjection, Luschen? Intensifier, in modern grammar, is an adjective (to be more specific, a prenominal).


Yes are are right, interjection is the correct term. Thank you!
