Ellipses

Three dots, with spaces between, indicate an ellipsis within a sentence or fragment; a period plus three dots with spaces between indicates an ellipsis between sentences, even when the end of the first sentence (if still grammatically complete) is omitted. In general, ellipses are not used before a quotation (whether it begins with a grammatically complete sentence or not) or after a quotation (if it ends with a grammatically complete sentence), unless the ellipses serve a definite purpose. See CMS15, 11.57–61, for more detailed guidelines on the use of ellipses.
