What is the proper use of ellipsis
An ellipsis is used to signify that part of a text or speech has been removed. It shows that something is missing. It DOES NOT show the passing of time, as it is commonly used.
"He said that eating fruits, like apples, and cheese helped him stay healthy."
"He said that eating fruits . . . and cheese helped him stay healthy."
