cheryl h Posted November 8, 2011 Share Posted November 8, 2011 So I read the lesson about inserting dashes and ellipses. Seems very practical. You use them when YOU are writing to imply something is missing. Here is my gripe...(ha)the ch.3 test has several sentences that you are supposed to figure out where the ellipses are supposed to be, but they have used sentences that make it nearly impossible to figure it out because as read they could be percieved differently. Other than using the ellipses to infere missing words in a direct quote, I always assumed that it is a stylistic tool used by the author of a sentence, etc. for emphasis and style. HOW CAN YOU TELL WHERE TO PUT THE STUPID ELLIPSES...if you are not the author of said sentence. I find this infuriating and annoying. Please help.
