One could not escape from them. And yet what a subtle magic there was in them! They seemed to be able to give a plastic form to formless things, and to have a music of their own as sweet as that of viol or of lute.
Was there anything so real as words? The idea of the text is preserved, and space is conserved. Well yes, Dorian, the retrieval of post-modern socie … is that a bunny? Too many ellipses can detract from the effectiveness of the prose and some readers and writers find it irritating to no end. If you have a mental space cadet for a main character, you might want to tone down your desire to use those dots.
You might wonder just how many dots should be in an ellipsis. The answer is that sometimes there are three! Sometimes there are four!
There is no such thing as a four-dot ellipsis. A four-dot ellipsis is actually an ellipsis with a period at the end of it. When using ellipses in conjunction with other punctuation, whether they be commas, semicolons, question marks, or exclamation points, treat the ellipsis as though it was just another word in the sentence.
For example, if Chuck and Carlton just escaped an encounter with a rabid hamster, and are interviewed by the local paper, a journalist might choose to eliminate some of the more superfluous text.
Never in a million years! Carlton almost got bitten, right after the thing started turning purple. This would be the same if other portions were eliminated.
