Ellipses—When and How?
by Paige Jackson
Ellipses —those little dots in the middle of a sentence—can be mystifying. Their purpose is to let the reader know that some part of a quotation has been left out.
Sometimes, text is omitted from the middle of a sentence. The missing text is indicated with three ellipses:
Original: He came home, with dogs and parakeet in tow, just in time for supper.
With text omitted: He came home . . . just in time for supper.
