Dash

Dash —

In informal writing, dashes may replace commas, semicolons, colons, and parentheses to indicate added emphasis, an interruption, or an abrupt change of thought.

Examples:You are the friend—the only friend—who offered to help me.

I pay the bills—she has all the fun.A semicolon would be used here in formal writing.

I need three items at the store—dog food, vegetarian chili, and cheddar cheese.**Remember, a colon would be used here in formal writing.

parentheses
Parentheses

Parentheses ( )

Rule 1: Use parentheses to enclose words or figures that clarify or are used as an aside.

Example: I expect five hundred dollars ($500).

Rule 2: Use full parentheses to enclose numbers or letters used for listed items.

Example:We need an emergency room physician who can (1) think quickly, (2) treat patients respectfully, and (3) handle complaints from the public.

ellipses
Ellipses

Ellipses …

Rule 1. Use ellipses when material has been omitted from a direct (word-for-word) quotation, whether the omission is a word, phrase, or several sentences.

Example: The absurdity of the situation makes me ponder Hamlet's query "whether ‘tis nobler in the mind to suffer . . . outrageous fortune."

ellipses1
Ellipses

Rule 2: Use ellipses to indicate a pause, hesitation, or unfinished thought.

The veterinarian spoke softly, "The poor horse is . . . was . . .”
