The word you are trying to describe is "exclamation" . Often these exclamations of joy, fear or disbelief are followed by an exclamation mark[ !] Example: Oh my God!

In German it's called Ausruf. There's also another term, Interjektion, sometimes used in grammar books. Jura already said that most exclamations are followed by an exclamation mark. Most of the time, they also have no verb. "Achtung!" "Ohje!" An exception to this would be: "Pass auf!"
