At some point (maybe not since school), you’ve probably used the ol’ “dot dot dot.” This punctuation indicates the deletion of one or more words when you’re condensing quotes or other texts. Just remember to be careful not to delete anything that could distort the meaning of the sentence.
An ellipsis can also be used to indicate a thought you (as the writer) don’t complete for emphasis. However, we don’t recommend using them for this purpose as it can get confusing for the reader. Try an em dash instead.
