An ellipsis is a series of three or more periods (...) inserted into a sentence to indicate a pause or silence. Ellipses are usually used in dialogue. Ellipses are used today in lieu of other proper punctuation.

An ellipsis can also be used to indicate the ommission or suppression of a word or phrase.

Latin ellpsis, from Greek elleipsis, from elleipein, to fall short.

Plural: ellipses
"I was thinking... well... maybe we could... ummmm.... go out sometime Sally."

"Why don't you just .... off!"

An ellipsis is a kind of 'super-period' which makes a female exponentially more emotional and bitchy than her regular period. Easily demonstrated graphically:

Period: .
Ellipsis: ..................................
Girl: WAHH WAHH WAAHHHHHH CRY BITCH BITCH FUCK YOU ASSHOLE!

Guy 1: Whoa, what's her problem?

Guy 2: She's being a megabitch because she's on her ellipsis.

Girl: WHAT THE FUCK DID YOU SAY? *starts bawling uncontrollably*
