    Question Can I use "Wrong!" as an interjection?

    Hi, everyone!

    I have a question. Can I use "Wrong!" as an interjection?

    Example:

    GIRL: We go to the movies tonight, right?
    GUY: Wrong! We'll watch football on TV.

    "Wrong!" is correct?

    Or maybe: "That's wrong!", "It's wrong!"?

    "Wrong!" is fine, other than being a bit rude.

    "We go to the movies tonight" is unnatural. "We're going to the movies tonight, right?" is better.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Sounds like a guy being rude to his girlfriend (not a smart fella).

    If he weren't so rude, it might sound like this:

    GIRL: We're going to the movies tonight, right?
    GUY: Sorry, I'd rather watch football on TV tonight.



    Interjections are fun!
