This paper analyses exclamatory sentences from the Middle Hungarian period, primarily in terms of their grammatical features. Among articulated exclamations, the author distinguishes those that determine their basic modal value with an interjection, an emphatic particle or an intensifying pronoun, respectively. She also discusses unarticulated exclamations in detail and adds that for some sentences whose exclamatory modality is not made unambiguous by grammatical features, it can be made probable by semantic ones. The investigation being performed on a closed corpus, it also allows for highlighting genre-specific characteristics within the various types of sources.
