If you were to ask me what my favorite punctuation mark was (And why wouldn’t you? It’s a great conversation starter) my answer would be fast and simple.
I love the … aka the ellipsis, aka dot, dot, dot.
Really it’s my favorite punctuation by far (side note: the parenthesis is my second favorite).
The ellipsis is fantastic.
Depending on their context and placement in a sentence, ellipses indicate an unfinished thought, a slight pause, and nervous or awkward silence.
Ellipses are the ultimate cliffhanger.
