Ellipsis Points

Ellipsis Points
Ellipsis points are also called ellipsis marks. These points are often used to indicate that a section of a quotation has been omitted. ►During Algebra class our teacher said, "The Pythagorean theorem is important because ... A squared plus B squared equals C squared."
Ellipsis points are sometimes used to control the setting and tone of the overall sentence, passage, or paragraph. Adding ellipsis points can slow down the action. ►Jeff ran to the tree ... barely able to catch his breath ... The killer was behind him ... He had to keep running.
