Ellipsism: the only TRUE religion.

All hail the holy trinity of dots (not to be confused with the shorthand for "therefore").

The ellipsis is one of my favorite underused pieces of punctuation...

I am also fond of the semicolon; it makes for great conjunctive statements.

EDIT: It is worth mentioning that an ellipsis is technically supposed to be three dots.

We should have grammar-related awards, akin the academy awards.

The winner of various categories will receive three golden balls as a tribute to the Almighty himself: the ellipsis.

Is it ironic that threadstarted spelled "Punctuation" wrong?


No. Do you know what irony is?

Anyway, it's nice to see a few people that actually care about grammar and that stuff. Obviously many people on UG know, for the most part, proper usage, but many people choose to ignore it. I edit a lot of literature; I see mistakes everywhere now.

I'll just die if I made a mistake in this post.

This reminds me of a short story I edited for a friend maybe three weeks ago. He used ellipsis 47 times in a 3000 word story. I was pretty impressed, but recommended he take some of them out.

It's not ellipsis, it's eucalyptus; the very food that the animal in your avatar eats!

What kind of koala fan are you!

I hate koalas.

You can start appreciating commas by not splicing them. Commas are alright, but they are greatly abused by the near-illiterate.

Take no offense to this - it was just semi-cynical way of pointing out the irony of your statement.
