Ellipsis örnekleri

Some writers like to use an ellipsis to show a pause in someone’s speech, to suggest that thought is unfinished, or to lend an air of mystery and drama:

  • It is not cold… it is freezing cold.
  • The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. … And if they have not died, they are still alive today.
  • “Call me Jully. . . . They called me Jolly.”
  • The Snow- Storm from Ralph Waldo Emerson
  • “Our anniversary date is . . . what again?”“I wish I could tell you the truth, but . . .”And they lived happily ever after . . .

If you’re quoting poetry, many of the same rules apply for using ellipses. Here’s an example:

In the poem “Holy Thursday,” William Blake argues that “where-e’er the sun does shine . . . Babe [infant] can never hunger there” (13, 15).

Even though we’ve left out a whole line of poetry, a single ellipsis will do the trick.

On the other hand, if you skip at least a full line in a poetry block quotation, you might indicate this by means of a full line of dots:

In “Mending Wall,” Robert Frost wonders about the point of building walls:

Something there is that doesn’t love a wall,

That sends the frozen-ground-swell under it,

And spills the upper boulders in the sun;

And makes gaps even two can pass abreast.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

No one has seen them [the gaps] made or heard them made,

But at spring mending-time we find them there. (1-4, 10-11)

As always, make sure that the ellipsis is not too intrusive. The reader should be able to make the leap from one passage to another without getting lost en route.
