Kim Sun-ja. 2011. The Meanings and Functions of Ellipsis in Computer-Mediated Communication, Korean Sematics 35, This study attempts to demonstrate the meanings and functions of ellipsis used in computer-mediated communication. Ellipsis is regularly found when pause is shown, it indicates that ellipsis is substituted with pause. It is considered that the meaning of ellipsis as an alternative of pause is derived from its the primary meaning replaced by silence. Ellipsis usually indicates three meanings in korean. In first case, it is used to intentionally omit a word in the original text. In the second case, it marks unfinished thought, or, at the end of a sentence, a trailing off into silence. Finally, ellipsis can represent the silence. In second case, pause occurs at the end of a sentence as unfinished meaning in spoken language, ellipsis can be expanded and used as an alternative of pause in computer-mediated communication. In other word, it comes from aposiopesis which is the primary meaning. The ellipsis is found in many different functions of grammar and discourse by the position.
