Anonymous said: Why do you always end sentences in an ellipse and exclamation mark? Do you run out of breath often or something?
No, that’s not it.
So an ellipsis (I just found out that’s the proper spelling of it, pfff) represents “an unfinished thought, a slight pause, and nervous or awkward silence”.
So in my mind, when I add another punctuation after an ellipsis, it’s sort of like a… Slight hesitation to lessen the effect of the punctuation.
When I use an exclamation mark like this…! I’m not saying it with too much of a strong feeling, but still stronger than normal.
And when I use a tilde with it…~ My playful, sing songy tone is a bit more… Subtle, but it’s still there…~
Sometimes, I’ll use it with a question mark…? As if I’m asking a question, but I’m not really sure about it still.
And that’s how I’ll use ellipses in combination with other punctuations to convey my feelings a lot more effectively over the internet…!
Of course, others can use them and interpret them in different ways, so please keep context in mind when looking at punctuations. Misinterpretation is a dangerous thing…!
